I started making jewelry by hand when I was in high school (about 14 years ago) by stringing seed beads in a daisy pattern. I gave out bunches of necklaces to friends as gifts or on request. I stopped making jewelry when I started college and didn't start up again until 2010 - it actually happened by accident! I needed to go to a specific store that happened to be right next to a bead store - I'd had no idea they had stores dedicated entirely to gorgeous gemstone beads. I was immediately hooked.

Kathy over at La Bead Oh (my local bead store) has been a huge help!

I generally come up with new designs and ideas while browsing my local bead store. I love finding something that catches my eye and then building a piece around it! Sometimes it's as simple as thinking of how I could combine it with items I already have at home, and sometimes it's as involved as scouring the internet for days to come up with the perfect component to compliment my new find. Each piece usually goes through several redesigns before I'm fully satisfied with how it looks.
