About

Fascinated by seed beads

I met my first trade style beads when we were workamping in the boonies of western Montana one summer. I could not resist them and my collection and fascination began. I thought the only stitch I needed to learn was the peyote stitch - little did I realize the size of the door it opened into the world of tiny beads.
It led me to beaded beads, and on to beaded ropes, the spiral, the herringbone, the brick stitches and the African style and colors. 20 years later I am still a beginner and now completely facinated.
In search of cords for my beaded beads I discovered kumihimo braiding and had to try adding seed beads to those 8 strand braids. Hours tumble into days now and I cannot seem to run out of ideas. Though I did run out of necks and wrists of family and friends. So have moved quite a few pieces of the collection here to etsy and my website www.booniebeads.com
Thank you for browsing and I hope you find a piece to begin or add to a collection of your own.
