Pamela Kearns

pam-kearns1-headshot-300dpi-300w

Although a seed beader at heart, Pam has been branching out into new techniques and combining the best of all worlds into her creations. She sells her work and peyote patterns in stores, shows and through Etsy. She had her first project published in the May/June 2013 issue of Beadwork. Pam taught at the 2014, 2015, 2016 Bead and Button Shows in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and is teaching five classes at the 2017 Bead and Button Show.

A problem solver, Pam thoroughly enjoys teaching and inspiring students to think beyond basic techniques encouraging students to stamp their own vision on projects.

As a new endeavour in her own teaching career (and fellow ‘Lefty’), Pam has started to include ‘Lefty-Alerts’ within her class instructions ensuring that everyone is able to complete the techniques easily.
