Featured Designer: Mikki of The Beaded Carpet

Oh happy day...It's Friday!! It's a wonderful feeling to get to this point in the week! A moment of freedom at the end of a busy week and before all the weekend activities begin....

I have to tell you I have been anxious to share this week's designer with you because I was truly inspired after reading her posts.

She has taken risks to follow her passion and success is beginning to follow.

Mikki Ferrugiaro is the designer behind the blog, the Beaded Carpet. Her artfire shop, Mikki Ferrugiaro Designs has some fabulous and intricate pieces for sale.

She sells her beadwork kits as well as the specific seed beads needed to do this type of beadwork. If you are in Utah, you might have the opportunity to take one of her classes!

After reading her blog, I don't know how she does it. Seriously, a day's worth of beadweaving to her would have taken me a couple of weeks to complete.

Mikki's work is soon to be featured in a couple of bead magazines including Beadwork and Step by Step Beads!!

Thanks a bunch Mikki for allowing me to share your work!

Lisa, thanks you so much for your kind words. I started my blog in the hopes I might help other beaders see some of the pitfalls and difficulties when going out on your own so they could learn from my mistakes. Hopefully some will say "If she can do it, so can I"
