September's Artists of the Month

Susan and Janice

Hi my name is Susan and I'm afraid my quilting and scrap booking have gone by the wayside. I began beading,  it's such an addictive past-time and it has fulfilled my love of jewelry.


My name is Janis Collin and I am 51 years young. I was born and raised in Southern California and moved to Michigan 7 years ago after meeting my current husband on the internet 8 1/2 years ago. Between us we have 3 children and 4 grandchildren.

I have been beading for about 2 1/2 years. It all started when I decided to take apart a vintage crystal necklace to make into something I would wear. I have been hooked ever since. I love working with sterling silver and different types of beads. My co-workers often times find pictures of an expensive jewelry party catalog item and ask me to recreate it for them which is always at a fraction of the cost. If you like my designs, and you are interested in purchasing items from me or have a special request, please contact me at home 810-424-6129 or by email at
