Lacey, here! I am the owner and designer of Wild Lace Beadwork, located in the Nebraska Panhandle, six miles from the South Dakota border.
This business has been a work-in-progress for many years. As a young girl, my mother taught me how to sew fabric. Growing up on a ranch, I thought sewing was pure drudgery and poor Mom had quite a struggle getting me to sit long enough to learn. Little did I realize, the time would come when I would sew practically every day!
Fast-forward a few years to college graduation. Determined to become a leather worker, I used my graduation gift money to invest in leather and some tools. My first project was a set of spur straps. I proudly showed them to my friend and mentor, who gravely examined them and said, "Keep practicing, Lacey. Keep practicing." Well, practice, I did!
Here I am today, working with leather on a daily basis! However, beadwork has definitely become my specialty. I rarely use pattern graphing software. I believe the best designs come from the heart and I love designing patterns directly on the loom.
I enjoy making customized beaded belts and incorporating beadwork into purses and other beaded accessories. I would love to make something special for you! Feel free to place an order by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Go to the Place an Order Page for more details!
