New work . . . "Peep Show" Corsets made from shantung silk, coutille, spiral steel, lace grommets and ribbon, then adorned with elaborately beaded panels.  Finally! . . . a way to combine my historical costume skills with my love of beadwork.
The new book is now available at

It's not a project book.  Better yet, it's a book about creativity and inspiration; about where my ideas come from and how I apply these inspirations.  It has valuable information about how to evolve your own creativity as well as technical information about working with unconventional objects.  Interspersed amongst the text and throughout a 75 page gallery are over 100 images of my work over the past 14 years.
