I am a member of the bead family since 2005 year. I entered several International and domestic contests that were held in Moscow, Samara (Russia), Oregon, Washington, Texas and Wisconsin states.

In 2009 and 2010 I entered annual bead contests sponsored by Fire Mountain Gems and was awarded with Grand Prize Gold Medal in 2009 and Silver Medal Prize in 2010. Fire Mountain Gems published several of my pieces on their ads in such well known magazines as Bead & Button, Ornament, FMG's years and monthly catalogs. I have a few publication in "Fashion" magazine. In 2012 my necklace was Finalist at Bead Dreams Show.
