My name is Lynn (really it is LOL) and I have been beading for about 4 years now.
My initial love was gemstones and whilst I still love them, I prefer seed beading around them.
I loathe stringing these days and would rather climb razor wire than string beads.
I did have a shop in my home town until recently, when I was diagnosed with depression. Since then my life has mainly been about therapy and Dr’s appointments.
I am selling off my entire shop stock on Etsy. It is a slow process but I am getting there.
I have had three tutorials published in Beads Etc magazine (an Australian bead mag, completely inferior to the fantastic American ones), and I have also had an article on Peyote Stitch published in it.
You can see pictures of two of my pieces that were done as turorials in the Design Gallery. One is called Sea Spray and the other is Okeanos.
