Lively Accents started as a home based and family owned business. As a self taught artisan, I have been making jewelry for over 30 years. I began collecting more and more beads-different colors, shapes and sizes. I continuously experiment with designs, color combinations and now my jewelry includes the use of Swarovski crystals, fresh water pearls and semi-precious gemstones. My creations have evolved from simple designs to intricate wire sculptures. I also make bead embroidery jewelry and accessories.
