My name is Sharon Shook and I specialize in one of a kind plus custom handmade jewelry. I have been making jewelry since the age of 16. I was taught the art of bead-weaving by my Mother, and Grandmother. I hope to one day carry on the tradition to my daughter. I am always trying new techniques. My favorite type of bead-work is picture beading whether it be peyote, brick or square stitch. It is such a thrill to see the finished piece after investing all the time to make it. I like to do various bead-weaving techniques including but, not limited to these stitches: Peyote (flat & tubular), Brick (flat & tubular), Square Stitch, Herringbone, St. Petersburg, Right Angle Weave, Basic Spiral, Crochet rope and African Helix.
