ABOUT OUR FEBRUARY VISITING ARTIST – LESLEE FRUMIN
Leslee Frumin is a bead and metal artist from San Juan Capistrano, CA who teaches off-loom bead weaving as well as metal/jewelry techniques. She has been teaching for a number of years and truly enjoys it.
Leslee’s passion for all of the colors and textures made possible by the marriage between beads, metals, and stones keep her excited. She fabricates clasps and connectors and often sets semi-precious stones to enhance the design. Her art jewelry pieces are one of a kind. Leslee has won awards for some of her combination bead and metal projects.
“Teaching is a wonderful event for me. I love the fact that the students are there because they want to learn a new technique or a project I have created. I am thrilled to see the new directions students take a piece. I am delighted to hear about their successes in receiving awards for their work or becoming designing artists themselves. I can’t think of a better job than this.”
Leslee teaches at shows, bead societies, and stores across the country including the Bead & Button and BeadFest.
