Patti Whiteley-Beader & Friend

On Saturday, January 31st, the bead community lost an active and creative community member in Patti Whiteley.  Patti was a long-time member of the Bead Society of New Jersey until work obligations precluded her attending meetings.

Patti was a designer and fused-glass beadmaker.  Her work was featured in the book “1000 Glass Beads.”  She often attended Bead & Button, taking classes and enjoying the shopping and schmoozing.  She was very active in many online bead communities as well.

Patti’s work can be seen at http://www.pattiwhiteley.com/.

    This is such sad news, especially since Patti was quite young. I know her husband and son must be crushed. She was also a member of the ISGB and in particular loved attending the annual glass event at Salem Community College. Thank you Suzanne, for gently telling us this sad news. Jeri
