Darlene Mansue has been involved in making art for over 20 years. Her passion & love of being creative pushed her to major in Ceramics at the University of Delaware, where she graduated with a BFA. Upon graduating, she was awarded a grant to take jewelry making classes at Wilmington College of Art & Design. After returning to her home state of New Jersey and working in a local bead store, Darlene fell into the bead show circuit working to sell Marsha Neal Studio Pendants and eventually starting her own bead supply business—D7 Studio. Through D7 Studio, Darlene travels throughout the Northeast selling a combination of artist beads and unique stinging supplies. Her interaction with customers at beads shows has led her to want to share her passion and knowledge about beading and designing, by teaching others. Her teaching experience includes teaching private & group lessons, workshops at bead societies, and one on one demo’s at bead shows.
