Announcement   Hello and welcome to the Curious Bead!
Over the last 30 plus years I have managed to squirrel away and create a treasure trove of fine and unusual beads, pendants, and objects that I can not possibly use or wear in several lifetimes. Rather than leave these avidly collected pieces nestled in the dark, it's time to release them back to the world into the next pair of creative hands...maybe yours?
If you LOVE earrings (I do, I do) then be sure to check out audreyf.etsy.com

    Like many others I was smitten by the "craft bug" after making my first pot holder way back when. Collecting, making, buying, selling and learning for 30 years. I love it all!
