I really like the colors of these beads, but they were a tad too small (my measurements were a little off?), but I can still make some type of jewelry with them. I will definitely shop from this Etsy seller again:) Many thanks, Kris
Love the size and colors.
These are uniquely made...will use for future projects.

Super fast shipping, exactly as described. Couldn't be happier. Can't wait to use them in a project.
Etsy comes naturally for me!
I can easily say that I am definitely and without a doubt a product of my environment! I grew up in a conservative home of recycling, repurposing, and "making do". My mother was an exceptional seamstress who home-spun the majority of my clothing until I graduated from college. Not only was this the case, but my mother and her mother (my grandmother) collected antiques way before it became a beloved hobby of many folks today. They also enjoyed all sorts of crafting and making things by hand, relishing the fact that their talents gave them a special bond. Each of these factors deeply influenced my adulthood and has made me the person I am today. I love to imagine and create, but mostly I love to inspire. I guess it is the "teacher" in me that continues to want to nurture the imagination of others....to present opportunities to fulfill creative dreams.
Almost 4 years ago I became interested collecting buttons for projects. As a "pre-retirement" hobby, I started sewing fabric yoyos from some of the quilting fabric stash that had been my mother's. I also tried my hand at making paper beads, which I found very addictive:) With all of my items, I needed an outlet. One of my co-workers suggested I try Etsy, and that is how all began!
I taught for 34 years and retired 2 years ago. To sweeten the deal, my husband, who owns a wine bar and lounge, kindly gave me the upstairs to his building (two apartments) so that I might have a studio. I feel blessed that I have been able to do the the two things in life that I really love...teach and inspire.
