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.
