NEW!  Handmade Jewelry on Sale Here!

I have just started posting my work on this website.   I have about 200 pieces to post so please come back again.

I started making jewelry about 5 years ago.  After spending a weekend taking classes with Mary Hetts (Hettmansperger), a renowned jewelry and basketry artist/instructor, I was hooked for life.  Since that time, I have made hundreds of pieces for family, friends and coworkers.  When an art teacher suggested I approach The Milwaukee Art Museum to sell my work in their gift shop, I decided that maybe it’s good enough to start selling online through our East Troy Basketry website J As artists we just never know when we are “good enough.” 

Most of my pieces are my own designs and are “One of a Kind.”  This means I may make similar pieces but never exactly the same.

Please take a minute to check out my new endeavor and share with your friends.

Dyed Reed Is Our Specialty

We have become known throughout the U.S. for our beautiful dyed and space-dyed reed.  All of our reed is treated to minimize bleeding.

We will dye any color of reed in any size you want.  If you need a specific color or want to match a decor, just let us know and we can dye it for you.  Please allow 2 weeks to dye and dry your weaving product.  Check out our "In Stock Dyed Reed" to see what is already dyed and ready to ship to you.

If you have any questions about a specific product, custom dyeing, shipping or just additional information, please call us. We would love to hear from you.
