About

Craft Addict Breaks Into Jewelry!

It all started at a neighborhood ladies night out when the hostess presented all her guests with a very simple beaded bracelet. That motivated me to learn yet another craft technique - jewelry making.

I found a local bead store that provided beginner lessons and made my first pair of earrings. That was all it took to galvanize me into remaking a necklace that my mother had given me (costume jewelry) to play dress up with as a child. Over time, the necklace had broken but I kept the beads. I was able to redesign the necklace to make it more current and wear it all the time now.

Why the name "The Beckoning Cat"? The name "beckoning cat" or "maneki neko" comes from a Chinese/Japanese folktale about a wealthy feudal lord who was taking shelter under a tree near a temple during a thunderstorm. The lord saw the temple priest's cat sitting on the front step of the temple beckoning to him and followed; a moment later the tree was struck by lightning. The wealthy man became friends with the poor priest and the temple became prosperous (thanks to Wikipedia for the basic info). Just a symbol of good luck/good fortune.

My motto for life is "You never stop learning" so I always look forward to learning new techniques and grow as a crafter and a person.
