Jamie Spires' Profile

About

Thanks for coming to my little piece of the world wide web! My name is Jamie, and my passion, my obsession, is beading. I started when I was 10 stringing seed beads on fishing line, making daisy chains. There wasn't a lot available at that time, so that's all I ever knew about. Fast forward 16 years, and WOW, there's so much more that you can do! I've been working on jewelry for 16 years now, off and on. Mostly off, until about 4 years ago, when a coworker's handmade bracelet inspired me to jump back into the craft. I love the sparkle and texture of different beads, gemstones, glass, crystal. The way they hang on a cord. I just love jewelry!

Now, I want to learn so much more. I hope to get into silversmithing and more complicated beadweaving at some point in the future.
