Class at Bead Abode, Sarasota, FL - July 10th 2017

I am very happy to start my classes at Bead Abode, Sarasota. They are scheduled for the second Monday of each month, from 2:00pm to 5:00pm.
July 10th "Easy Bling Bracelet". This piece can be finished during the class and I will be leading you step by step through the end to make sure it will be finished nicely. Very nicely! The materials are available at the store, where Kirsten Boyer will assist you on choosing the right ones. Can't wait to see you there. "Beading jewelry and good thoughts work together". God bless!

My daughter's illustration work


I graduated in Advertising in 2004 in São Paulo, Brazil. In 2007, I got a Masters degree in Photography. I worked as a full time photographer until 2012, when, in Milan, Italy, after studying at IED - Istituto Europeo di Design, I began my career as an illustrator.

Today, I live in Brooklyn, NY with my jazz player husband, two furry cats and a great internet connection. Let's talk!
