I first started beading when my daughters were in elementary school. They wanted the pony bead critters to hang on their backpacks, so we bought the materials and I learned how to create them. From that point on, I was addicted to beads.
The beads have gotten a lot smaller since then and I've combined several other hobbies into my beadweaving to create my current pieces. I loved creating counted cross-stitch patterns and that turned into creating my own beadweaving patterns. I love taking photographs and that fueled the inspiration for my beadwoven images.
The name of my shop is for my mom, Rosalie. She was always my biggest supporter. She sold almost all of my early pieces and was constantly talking about my latest projects to her friends and coworkers. When I was a young adult she bought me a copy of Shakespeare's works while she was visiting England. She knew how much I loved them and when I lost her in 2003, all of those things inspired my shop name: A Rose By Name. Not only is it similar to the line in Shakespeare's play Romeo & Juliet, but roses were her favorite flower.
