I have been dabbling with beads for a life time. Altho making a living came in there and diverted me for years. Then I walked into a bead shop in Savannah GA and POW! I was instantly struck by the bead bug. So I started to make things for myself to wear at work and people would literally buy the pieces off my neck! I have been doing shows in GA for about eight years and have a shop on Etsy that is still slowly coming along. I love gemstones of all types (species!) but I have to say that Jasper is my favorite because it comes in all colors and patterns. Beading and gemstones are my passion and I love the way I feel when I’m shopping for new gems and then turning them into a piece. It is great to have a new group of friends that are as bead crazy as I am! Thanks for the warm welcome!
