Nikia has been beading for more years than she'd like to count! Teaching since 1989 and on a national level since 2002, she travels eighy months of the year to bead shows (Beadand Button, Bead Fest Oakland, Bead Fest Portland, Bead Fest Arlington, Bead Fest Santa Fe, Rocky Mountain Bead Bazaar, BABE) and bead stores across the country sharing the joy and teaching her innovative designs.
She is owner of the popular kit website, BuytheKit.com. Her days are spent in beautiful Albuquerque, NM, beading new designs and getting ready for the next show. "Beading is as necessary to me as breathing...or chocolate", she says, laughing.
