Sally Peck has always been an artist, and tried her hand at a number of things while
in school. After graduating with an art degree and a teaching credential, she taught
grade school for thirty years.
On retiring in 1991, she took beading lessons to refresh her memory of an art
she had learned as a Campfire Girl.
Since then, she has beaded over three hundred pieces of wearable art. The designs
are her own, no two are alike, and all are hand-beaded. Her ideas come from impressions
of things around her, and sometimes just from the materials at hand and a vivid imagination.
Her jewelry is made from natural materials such as shell, stone, or semi-precious
gems, sometimes tile or ceramic, and lots of glass seed beads.
Throughout the twenty years she’s been beading, she has won many national, state
and local awards. Her beading is more than a hobby; it’s an exciting obsession.
