I have been beading since I was a teenager, but the older I got, the smaller the beads of choice became. I left my job in academia to become a full-time beader. I do off-loom beadweaving, crocheting, Kumihimo, wire knitting and crocheting and bead embroidery. Have taught at B&B and Beadfest shows. I recently opened a second shop on etsy called Beaders Supply Hut where I sell beads and supplies for all beaders. I will be blogging about these beads to help those interested in beadwork to make the right choices. Your comments are much appreciated.
