Julienne Hadfield started beading in elementary school and sold to the neighborhood pharmacy. Much to her surprise, they sold well.
Although she studied fine art and received a degree and made many fine art commissions, she continued to always maintain her passion for beading. Forty-eight years later, over 50 stores carry her beadwork, including two stores of her own in Mesilla, New Mexico.
Written up in New Mexico magazine and many other publications for her intricate, artistic, and prolific approach to beading, Julienne has not tired of the artform at 58 years old.
