Welcome fellow beaders

Julie My name is Julie Amgwert. My close friends and family call me JulieAnn. I live in the Matanuska Valley in the great State of Alaska. I have been in the small city of Palmer for over 30 years. I have worked as a Construction Flagger/Laborer since 2003 which keeps me very busy in the summer months. As you all know, we have long cold winters here. Picking up a craft, any craft and falling in love with your art, helps the long winter months pass.

the beginning

I started dabbling in beads when I was about 10 years old. My Mom brought home a tackle box full of beads and fishing line. There were a lot of baubles in this mystery box. My sister and I proceeded to experiment and we created many wonderful “firsts.”


the present

Now, many years later, I still enjoy doing my beadwork during the winter months. I have started going to holiday bazaars in the past 2 years and have done well.

I hope you all enjoy this website – my husband developed it for me.
