Jody's  Journey continues:

She loves her job sharing her passion of beading and sharing her "Raised Texture" bead embroidery style that she created over 17 years ago. Jody  feels so honored to do what she loves to do with each on of you. Here workshops are unique of her own designs and will learn to bead outside the lines with a free-form beading style. Jody wants to thank all of you that spent hours of creative time with her and encourage others to come join in on a very inspirational time with creating your own piece of beadwork. Her workshops are more then beading and has a following of students. 

Jody's studio is filled with many treasures that she has been  listing on her etsy site and she also offers some retire kits from  past workshop. Check out the close-outs too!

2018 is going to be another busy one.  Jody is being more selective and travel a bit less, doing more in her home town and studio. 

Jody is also in the process of writing and finishing her book.

"Beading Beyond The Boundaries"

Jody is a busy lady doing everything for her business herself with (no employees) It is a lot of work preparing for workshops....creating designs, making one-of-kind kits , writing instructions and also keeping up on her etsy site. She is also the one doing my own web-sites now.

Jody wishes all Bead Blessing and creative times



Beyond Beads Gallery in Spokane Valley, Washington had the WOW factor. Upon stepping into the store you realized you were in a magical place. Looking around you wondered which direction to go first...toward the crystals, seed beads or stones.


It was  a place of comfort and quietness -a place to relax and be inspired. selection of beads, crystals, stones, beading supplies and tools in Spokane and the Inland Northwest.  Her success can be attributed to the fact that she welcomed changes in the industry; always embracing new and evolving trends in the beading world, yet staying true to the basic concept of beading and to all of her customers that supported the store for years.    


"Rags to Richness

Jody is now introducing fibers and creating with other elements into her beadwork.  Workshops are available
