In 2004, after twelve fairy-tale years in Madison, my husband’s job brought us to Kansas City, Missouri. Here we responded to an increased demand for yarn, ribbons, beads and IDEAS. People began coming to Florilegium for inspiration. Every day they asked “how did you do that” or “where do you come up with all these ideas?”. So, after nine years, I decided to answer those questions in a new way. This website is the result. Here we will offer unique ideas and projects I have designed with custom-made materials you won’t find elsewhere. In 2019 we added kaleidoscopes to satisfy our passion and to compliment our selection of gems and beads. Thank you Fred and Gretchen.
