About SusanARay

On Etsy since 2013

My love of beads began 18 years ago. I am fascinated by the human story beads tell, the nature of the beads, the hands that created and traded them.

My love for beads has led me from my early discovery of the vast history available and the opportunity to learn the skills required to create beautiful jewelry myself. I later opened the first bead store in Galena, Illinois and taught more than 20,000 women (and a few men) to bead.

As my knowledge grew I wanted to share it further and so I wrote five books about beading for the craft industry. Along the way I have made many dear friends and have been fortunate to be inspired by many of the industry’s leading designers. You can visit me here at OneHealingStone or at Facebook group: Crafting Jewelry Inspiration.
