When Lennis was little, she used to love to make jewelry, but as she became an Adult…she forgot. Born in Florida, Lennis has also lived in California, England, Virginia, North and South Carolina, and Georgia. She has always loved antique shops, garage sales, and charity shops. As a flight attendant, student, pilgrim and thrill seeker, Lennis traveled through the United States and Europe collecting pretty, shiny baubles. Not understanding why, she was drawn to buying beads everywhere she went. One day, Lennis said to herself, “what am I going to do with all these beads?” Then she remembered a long time ago in a faraway land, she used to make jewelry and her alter ego, Windbent, was born. Windbent loves to combine vintage and modern components, paint, textiles and mixed metals to create fun wearable art. If there is a place to buy beads, antiques, or books then she will find it and spend hours there–just ask her long suffering husband.
