BeadPirates is a family collective, with everyone in the house on board full-time. I personally have been enjoying making jewelry as a hobby for 8 years, with the guys becoming more and more involved over the last 2 years.
It makes me very happy to create, and thankfully, the act of creating provided a life raft that kept me afloat during the unexpected unraveling and failure of my 15+ year marriage in 2005. My son and my craft provided beacons of light and hope during that very dark and confusing time.
Things have certainly have changed, and a new path and direction was revealed for me. Throughout it all, I continued to design and create jewelry, and my son began showing a stronger interest too. Family and friends had long been using their birthdays and other occasions to "blackmail" us into creating a special piece or set for them. This has led to a wonderful circle…
