Karin Bella's Profile
My name is Karin.. I am a homeschooling mom of two young ones (6 & 8), and I' started creating jewelry in March 2011.
I got into beads almost 20(!) years ago, after my first son was born. My husband at that time, was doing some carpentry work for a family that imported old African Trade beads. We stayed with the family while my ex-husband was working there, and needless to say, I was quite intrigued by the beauty and history behind those beads. I returned home with a nice array of all kinds of beads.
I had so much fun creating new pieces, the sheer endless possibilities were amazing. I sold some pieces to friends and such, but that was the extent of my business then.
Life took it's turns and twists over the course of the next 10 years or so, my beading ceased, but the boxes of beads…
