Sleeping Beauty Pendant and Earring Tutorial

Renee is a very talented beader who excells in creating tutorials highlighting multi-holed beads. Thank you for sharing your talent with us this month Renee!

Renee has shared a bit about her love for beading and how she started creating tutorials. "5 years ago, my husband and I moved to Appleton, WI, from Milwaukee, WI. When we moved to Appleton, I just had to go and find all the beading stores in and around our area. One day out of the blue, I was asked if I would be interested in teaching at a local bead store, I tried it and loved it!

Well the next thing I knew I was designing and teaching my very own designs. In 2014 started an Etsy shop, ElegancebyRenee, (etsy.com/shop/ElegancebyRenee), where I have been selling my patterns since 2014. The last few years I have been teaching my designs at a few wonderful beading stores throughout Wisconsin. I have been teaching the Madison Art Glass & Bead show in Madison, WI for the last 3 years. I had my first published piece with the Bead & Button Magazine in the Dec. 2015/Jan. 2016 issue.

We are very excited to hear that her first book will be published in January 2018. Congratulations Renee!

To keep up on her latest designs make sure you like her Facebook page.
