Hello to All Bead and Jewelry Fanatics!
I taught myself the art beading after my grandmother passed away 10 years ago. She had left me with a large collection of costume jewelry. The individual beads were beautiful but the pieces were outdated. Looking at the beads and clasps, I decided to rework the pieces and got myself hooked on the design and the art of beading.
Fast forward a few years…and I am surrounded by an incredible collection of beads! As a bead enthusiast, I have continued my quest for vintage beads by perusing estate sales and flea markets. I can’t think of a better way to spend a Saturday morning! I also collected many beads during the years I spent…
