SooKhim

I'd like to introduce my friend, SooKhim Eriksen. We met several years ago in a beginner's  class at our local bead shop and she then came to some meetings of our local fiber arts group. Since then, she has become a good friend whom we all admire.

Each time we girls go out together, SooKhim seems to be wearing a new hand crocheted sweater, shrug or shawl which she has made since our last get-together. She often adds interest by embellishing her creations with beading, and always chooses beautiful yarns.

And, even though we met at a beginner's class, SooKhim has far surpassed me at jewelry making!! She is a master at chain maille, beading, bead crochet and design. Here are two of her creations in silver, and a bead crochet necklace she made for me!
It's a pleasure to know and be inspired by such a talented lady!
