Bead Work

Susan Kirz

I'm Susan Kirz.  I'm known throughout the area as the beadlady.  I'm a Colorado native and have lived in the Bailey area for 34 years. I started beading 31 years ago.  My work is in 42 states and Germany, Holland, France, Canada, Mexico and Japan.  For my daughter's wedding, I made the bouquets with French beaded flowers for the bride and her attendants along with the boutonnieres and corsages for the wedding party.  In 2004, I won the Bead Challenge at the Rocky Mountain Bead Society.  I also won awards at the Bead and Fiber show in Fairplay. You can also see my work at River Canyon Gallery in Bailey.
