Pamela Kearns

 

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 had her first project published in the May/June 2013 issue of Beadwork. Pam taught at the 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017 Bead and Button Shows in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

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

To ensure that all students can accomplish the techniques, Pam (also a ‘southpaw) includes ‘Lefty-Alerts’ within her class instructions.
