Bio

Welcome to Creations By Tera. Beading, bead weaving, & sewing keep my hands busy, & my mind & spirit calm. I started sewing before my teenage years. I love the process of designing, choosing fabrics, and making many of my own clothing and home decor, including colorful, fanciful, and whimsical wall hangings. I started beading as a young professional dancer (in my late teens) because we did not have all the fancy, expensive imported costumes from Egypt and Turkey that are available now. I set all that aside when I went back to professional school in my thirties to become a Doctor of Chiropractic. I had no time for my arts and design work for many years after that. But I never felt quite complete without creative outlets. Once I had time again, I got into design work by taking a pattern making class at a local community college only to find a good portion of the other students were women in my age group doing the same thing. It was great! I needed to get back to my creative, artsy self and create things of beauty. I started back into beading by taking various beading and bead weaving technique classes with various artists/teachers at my local, favorite bead store. That was about fifteen some years ago now! I am now a member of the Portland Bead Society and enjoy continuing to grow and learn. I'm a huge believer in the process of being a life-long learner! It gets to the point where one woman can wear only so much jewelry and hang so many wall hangings, etc. In my circle of family, close friends, and mentors, everyone has encouraged me to sell my work. So here I am! Welcome to my world of beading & sewing! Enjoy! Tera
