Hey there... I'm Tina and I LOVE making jewelry! 

Back in 1991, I started learning to make earrings and life was never the same. 

Maybe you have met me at an art fair, or maybe you knew me before when I owned The Bead Monkey.

I used to own two bead stores (the Bead Monkey), I had one at 50th and France in Minneapolis, and another at Grand & Victoria in St. Paul. I did that for 23 years, and I'm proud to say I helped introduce the art of jewelry making to the Twin Cities. We taught a lot of classes over the years!

Now, I strive to make affordable, wearable art that can be worn for years.

You can find me, with my family always helping, at one of the art fairs I do in the midwest.
