Heidi's beadwork is an expression of herself, and her feelings for our Mother Earth and
the creatures upon her. Through researching Native American beadwork techniques
and trial and error, her work has continually evolved. Heidi started working with beads in 1975
and remembers making jewelry even as a young child. She currently lives on 12 acres west of Boulder, Colorado with her husband Gregg two dogs and two cats.
Their home is totally off the grid. The sun and a back up generator is all they need to
power their home. Heidi has won numerous design awards throughout her career you can view
these below.
 Heidi hopes that through her work she can share the beauty that surrounds her

and give the wearer a sense of oneness with the world the earth and creatures upon her.
