Sherry StoneVirginia Ames, a Pueblo West, CO, resident,

has found bead embroidery, an off-loom bead weaving process,

a satisfying art form that has advanced to numerous award-winning projects 

and gallery representations. She likens her bead embroidery to 

placing another piece in a jigsaw puzzle,

as the colors and textures of the beads make each piece come alive.
