Beading, it's what I do to keep me sane

I’ve always been creative, one way or another but, nothing has really stuck with me. I get bored, or rather, I used to before beading entered my life!

It started with me trying my hand at stringing - I bought beads at a local show and gave it a go and within a few days, my mind went "oh hell no, not for me"! I did however find the beads extremely enticing and wanted a proper challenge so, I went on the hunt and discovered bead weaving on the web. Yes! This looked like something I could give a try. Well, it took more than many tries before I got a handle on simple Peyote stitch (unknowingly I was using size 15 beads - imagine the trauma) but, once I got it, I got it! I absolutely loved it and went mad making Amulet Bags (remember those?), spiral ropes and netting over big polystyrene (painted) balls....and then I felt the familiar sense of boredom creeping in again. There had to be more to this than what I was doing and it was time to put the hunting gear on again and go search for a “fix”.

Through asking many (probing) questions and being a bit out there, entering competitions, I was eventually introduced to a teacher who did courses on advanced beading. I jumped at the chance and am so glad I did. At the end of these courses, I had to design, write instructions for and bead up 2 designs each in Herringbone, Right Angle Weave and Peyote Stitch. It is from there that I developed my pattern writing abilities and went on to open my Etsy shop back in Dec 2010 with only 12 pattern in hand. I no longer get bored......who's got time for that?
