Brand new to blogging, this is my first. I'd love to connect with other designers, and hear how everyone juggles the bead obsession with life's demands that pull us away from our beads (God forbid!)...I love to design, and often create in my sleep. I am a wife, mother, and wannabe Martha Stewart. I know I'm not the only one...
My jewelry design history began about nine years ago when I saw some adorable beaded key chains in a gift shop, saw the price tag, and said to myself "No way am I paying that price, I'll make 'em myself!" I started with one plastic bead box, and the result has been a joyful experience of learning and creating. I now sell my jewelry at many art shows and in my Etsy shop, and my designs have been published multiple times in Bead Trends Magazine.
I'm not sure yet what all I will be doing with my new blog, but I intend for it to be fun and open to possibilities...I look forward to hearing from fellow designers and jewelry lovers.
