Tom and Kathy Wegman met in 1969 and have been married since 1987.  Their Artistic focus on beading is a result of their common interest in collecting Native American crafts.  Tom began beading ten years ago, Kathy five.  Since then, they have developed a strong artistic partnership.  They have shown their work together at the Smithsonian Craft Show in Washington, D.C., 13 Moons Gallery in Santa Fe, NM, and the Snyderman Gallery in Philadelphia, PA.  Although they both create beaded sculptural objects, Kathy and Tom have styles each their own.

Tom and Kathy collect antique American Indian beaded pieces, Mexican folk art both new and old.  The two trade pieces at craft shows as well as buy pieces from other art shows such as the outdoor show in Iowa City.  They also enjoy shopping at antique shops and shows both for old pieces to add to our collection as well as looking for items to bead.
