Author Bio
Heidi has been beading since 1980, and it became a full-time job in 1990. She remembers as a child making jewelry out of found objects and learning from her grandparents. Sherry graduated with a graphic design degree from the Art Institute of Pittsburgh in 1987. She was raised in a military family and credits that nomadic lifestyle with giving her an adventurous spirit and uninhibited approach to her artwork. Heidi Kummli and Sherry Serafini have both won People's Choice awards at the Bead Dreams competition (Heidi in 2005 and Sherry in 2006).
