Beyond Beads Gallery


Beyond Beads Gallery closed their physical store two years ago after 21 great years. The good news is that we have a great offering online and you can still find unique and great items at our Etsy and Artfire sites.

Once the store was closed Jody took some much-needed creative time. She spent a few years in Hawaii creating and selling her bead artwork. She is now living back in the Pacific Northwest working on new projects to teach.

She does workshops in Spokane and Portland and has been invited to teach at the Tucson Bead Show, Bead & Boutique Arts in Concord, CA, and Bead Elements and Design Show in Santa Barbara, CA.

To learn more about Jody's workshops and what you can do to register for her 2015 sessions, visit

Embossed Vintage Velvet is a new workshop for 2015!
 These velvet pieces are available in five colors and provide a wonderful canvas for Raised Texture Beading. Register at

Shibori silk ribbon is wonderful as your canvas and encourages you to be free and let go, following the flow and waves of the ribbon.

Kits and Instructions are also available on Etsy.


Jody was published in 1997 in Bead and Button magazine for her Button Box Jewelry. By adding Shibori silk ribbon, the buttons take on a complet new look and feel. This is a great addition to her workshops, playing with the ribbon on a smaller scale.

Bead Blessings to all!!
