I have loved crafts all my life. When my children were very young, I became involved in making stained glass windows, crocheting, knitting, painting, and finally making antique reproduction porcelain dolls as a hobby and a way to relax when my babies were asleep. I had to go out into the business world to find a job and the dolls and other crafts were put on hold. Finally, I retired a few years ago and decided I would love to make dolls again. I discovered Etsy in February 2009, and I registered as a buyer under the user name lovetoknit2. Little did I know! I should have registered as lovetobead!

I have loved crafts all my life. When my children were very young, I became involved in making stained glass windows, crocheting, knitting, painting, and finally making antique reproduction porcelain dolls as a hobby and a way to relax when my babies were asleep. I had to go out into the business world to find a job and the dolls and other crafts were put on hold. Finally, I retired a few years ago and decided I would love to make dolls again. I discovered Etsy in February 2009, and I registered as a buyer under the user name lovetoknit2. Little did I know! I should have registered as lovetobead! One day I was searching for tiny mother of pearl buttons for doll dresses when I came across vintage German glass beads. A whole new world opened for me. I was hooked. I have been buying vintage and modern glass beads, semi-precious gemstones, components, etc., since I joined Etsy. I purchased dozens of books, attended classes and searched the Internet. After making many pieces of jewelry and giving them away as presents, I decided to start selling my handcrafted jewelry.

Fast forward to the present. I have accumulated hundreds of beads and components and I recently realized I could not possibly use all of them in my life time. So, I decided to dedicate this Shop to sell some of my supplies. You will find my prices very reasonable.

I welcome you to my shop. From being a customer and from my now 6+ years record as a buyer under the lovetoknit2 name, I learned how a customer should be treated. I hope you have a great experience at my shop and that you put me in your "favorites" and come back for more supplies. I will be adding many more items that may be of interest to you. Please contact me if you have any questions or comments.

Thank you!
Maria
