Welcome to the blog about my adventures in beading and my shop, Brownstone Beads! My shop features unique handmade beaded items, all designed and handcrafted by me! I especially enjoy working with semi-precious stones and interesting pendants, and with each piece I strive to bring out the natural beauty of the stones I work with.

I'm currently a grad student at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, working towards my PhD in biomedical engineering. Most of my time is dedicated to my research, which deals with the causes of low back pain and degenerative disc disease. When I'm not in the lab or in the classroom, I enjoy making the jewelry I sell in my Etsy Shop, as well as reading, photography, running, being outdoors, baking, cooking, and exploring the Troy, NY area.
