Creative Work

Beatriz Lothrop


Welcome to My "Bea Lothrop Artistry" Web Site

My artistic career started at age five making mud 'pies', baking them in the sun and painting them pistachio green and adding embellishment of stones and shells!  This was Mexico in the 50's -- steeped in color from the indigenous Indian textile hues; muralist Orozco's earth and jewel tone art; architect Luis Barragan's sparse and vivid color designs; Europe's influential gifts of broad boulevards and majestic cathedrals contrasting with the Pacific coast's sumptuous tropical natural wildlife that ignited my imagination forever.

Two lifetimes passed as I completed long careers: the first in the New York City advertising world, followed by a fulfilling career in the healing arts of Massage Therapy and Healing Touch in Sag Harbor, NY.   My third lifetime, I explored various interests from gardening, to beekeeping, to handwork arts with textiles, yarns and glass beads.

  My search for just the right expression for my love of detailed handwork  finally culminated in hand weaving with those yummy colored tiny glass seed beads from Japan, and Swarovski crystals from Austria and Czech pressed glass beads. 

In 2013 I was inspired to move to North Carolina. Landing in Weaverville I set up  a Beekeeping Yard,  followed by a Studio dedicated to my passion for hand weaving glass seed beads into  jewelry art.
