Lisa has always loved jewelry and has been making jewelry since childhood. She made and sold peyote bead wrapped crystals to specialty shops in Boston while in college.
Over the years, she continued to learn new beadwork and jewelry making techniques. As she tried different techniques and scratched them in her journal, she realized it would be so much easier to find the information if she could search for it by topic or keyword. That's when she started documenting her jewelry techniques and projects on her website Lisa Yang's Jewelry.
Lisa is an experienced writer of technical designs, training material, and user documentation for a variety of software applications, so explaining the step-by-step process of making jewelry and publishing beadwork tutorials comes naturally to her.
In all of her jewelry projects, Lisa tries to remember what it was like to be a beginner and writes with that audience in mind. She believes anyone can make beautiful jewelry with a little patience and the right tools and instructions.
Lisa has a Bachelor of Science in broadcasting and film from Boston University's College of Communications. She has taken additional coursework in business and information technology at Cal State University Northridge (CSUN) and UCLA.
Lisa's jewelry making skills came primarily from books, online resources, classes at local universities or bead stores, and endless experimentation with beads, needle and thread, and wire.
