I know one day I will have to stop collecting beads and misfit parts of jewelry...until then I will keep finding inspiration from them to share..

For me it started at a young age going through my grandmother's jewelry box..I loved all the beaded beautiful pieces she owned...and that love for accessories has stuck with me ..

In high school I was in deep with macramé and still have pieces I wore long ago :) .....One night in 1999 I spent hours playing around with beads and string and started to crochet necklaces I was in heaven. I sold so many to local boutiques and a few on a blog I had at the time...

When I started with etsy in 2007 I felt listing my crochet pieces would be a waste of time since they didn't get the attention and popularity they have to this day...I can't believe how wrong I was about that…

I had a new love of soldering and listed that instead....however, missed the ease of crocheting and the love of working with beads and different colored cords..so getting back to my roots I plan on crocheting some of my original pieces I made back in 1999 a "lace" pattern I created for bridesmaid gifts.....also creating more of my woven beaded earrings that were also a good seller in local boutiques...
