Pat Riesner is a beadweaver from a small sleepy town on the Hudson River. At the beginning of 1998 she was a neophyte when it came making beaded jewelry. She started with stringing and thought that was the absolute end! You could hear her laughing at her new beading friends who were using those TINY beads to do beadweaving. Years of classes, (you can never take enough) and she is now a very proficient beader. There is always something to learn from someone else. Her first love is writing directions and doing original graphics for teaching. She definitely has a passion for bling! Pat is an admired beading instructor in both beading stores and beading shows.
