All About Allie
I was born and raised in Seattle Washington where I still live with my two children and our two adorable hairless cats. I come from a family full of talented artists, which sparked my passion to always express myself creatively. I have so many great memories designing jewelry, painting, and sewing with the help of my grandmas at a very young age. Once I started working for Fusion Beads in 2005, I knew it was the perfect place for me! I've learned so many new beading skills and have been able to work with so many creative and talented people throughout the years. I love designing unique jewelry that really makes a statement. Crystals and gemstones are some of my favorites to design with, and i usually incorporate them with mixed metals, edgy components and occasionally some bead weaving. Working with wire and using our Covering a Component technique has always been a favorite of mine. I also enjoy fusing and soldering metal. I'm all about a pop of color in my jewelry, so you'll usually see my go-to hues like mustard, gray, chartreuse, teal, white or burnt orange in my designs.
