Laina Goodman has always had a passion for art. She graduated from Drexel University, earning a Bachelor of Science degree in Fashion Design. While living in Florence, Italy for a study abroad program, she studied art history, painting, silk screening, and silversmithing. Laina’s love of creating turned into a realty when she and two partners opened Artful Beads Studio and Workshop in 2006. The ten years she spent designing, teaching, and selling beads were some of the happiest times of her life. Laina continues to enjoy teaching beadwork, as well as her new role as a first time mom. She lives in Pennsylvania with her husband, baby girl, and furry black cat.
