Doris Weinbaum has been involved with beads, both as a businesswoman and an artist/teacher since 1993. In that year Doris opened a retail bead shop in Oak Park, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago. While owning and managing the shop, Doris began learning beading techniques and jewelry design from instructors in her store, books and customers. Given her breadth of experience with many other hand-crafts, including sewing, knitting and crocheting, Doris' talent for beading blossomed. Doris has had one of her original designs published and has taught a wide range of beading techniques to children and adults.
