== Introduction==
Elysabeth Underhill (Lissa) is a working class woman from the mid-late 1500's England. However, she has been wearing more and more early period clothing since she started making early period glass beads. You will often see her running around dressed as a Viking.

Mistress Elysabeth Underhill, nicknamed Lissa, (she/her/hers), used to be a working-class woman from the mid-late 1500's England. However, she has not had a set persona for a while now, and you are as likely as not to see her running around in early period Viking-ish garb.

At the moment, Lissa's focus in the SCA is supporting the Arts and Sciences in her role as Kingdom MoAS and working to improve her skill with a Rapier. She has been a fencer for much of her time in the SCA, having taken a break for a few years to pursue other activities.

Please know that Lissa is always happy to teach her art or provide SCA mentoriship. Teaching in SCA is extremely important to her, and something she is comfortable doing, so please do not hesitate to ask if you think she can help.

Lissa's art is the making of glass beads. While she has made beads from many time periods, much of her focus has been on recreating glass beads from Early Medieval England (5th-7th century).

Introduction

Mistress Elysabeth Underhill, nicknamed Lissa, (she/her/hers), used to be a working-class woman from the mid-late 1500's England. However, she has not had a set persona for a while now, and you are as likely as not to see her running around in early period Viking-ish garb.

At the moment, Lissa's focus in the SCA is supporting the Arts and Sciences in her role as Kingdom MoAS and working to improve her skill with a Rapier. She has been a fencer for much of her time in the SCA, having taken a break for a few years to pursue other activities.

Please know that Lissa is always happy to teach her art or provide SCA mentoriship. Teaching in SCA is extremely important to her, and something she is comfortable doing, so please do not hesitate to ask if you think she can help. She believes that deeper associations and relationships grow out of these initial intereactions.

Lissa tends to be a bit busy/preoccupied at events, so contacting her via Facebook (Lissa Underhill) or through e-mail (laralu@gmail.com) is always an alternative way to get in touch.
