Beadwork as an Art form is my passion. My initial interest was in the study of beaded jewelry. As my knowledge improved, I began to translate different techniques of beads and knots into three dimensional sculptures and tapestries. Inspiration comes from the world around me. Creatures of nature, landscapes, painted ceiling of churches are all ideas waiting for the translation into a beaded piece. My mother taught me that colors have relationships and to inspire emotion with color. For me, color is an important and fun aspect of my creations.
Inspiration also comes with the involvement with other artists of all Medias.

"I've been learning beading from Juanita for 3 years now. When I first began I was unsure whether beading was for me. She reassured me and began with the basics. She was very patient with me, answered my questions even if they seemed stupid to me. As my skills grew she presented me with challenging ideas for upcoming projects so that I was always reaching beyond my skills. When I was stuck or frustrated she encouraged me to try again. She is an excellent teacher and has also become a good friend."

"I have been a student of Juanitas for the last 3 years. She is a excellent teacher, with a unlimited amounts of patients for those of us that are slow to learn. She encourages her students to be creative. She enjoys her students success as much as they do. "

"I have enjoyed taking Juanita's bead weaving class. She is a really neat instructor. Patience really is her virtue. My husband and I appriciate the extra time she has taken to help us learn the craft. It has helped my husband with his hand and motorskill coordination due to a disability called Neuro-Degenerative Disorder of the Cerrebellum. She is absolutely wonderful in her way of working with him and making it an enjoyable experience. Thank you Juanita! :)"
