Kim Otterbein has had a love for beads all her life and still has a baggie of seed beads from the 1960's. Kim's training as a textile designer and painter seems to blend right in with jewelry making.

She is a certified instructor of Precious Metal Clay (PMC) and also a silversmith. She has had many projects and instructional articles published in various magazines, including Bead & Button, Belle Armoire, Art Jewelry, Beadwork, Polymer Café, and Lapidary Journal.
