I’m 23 years old. I started beading in summer 2008 after I graduated college and started working and actually had some money to have a hobby.
I needed something to relax, and I thought jewelry making would be fun. So I went to the store, picked up a book, bought a bunch of different things I saw in that book. I came home and just started doing stuff, without directions. I still do it like that today!
I get something in my head and just go. Often times, I tear a lot of things apart before I get it how I want it. Usually, nothing turns out like I think it will, but sometimes better!
