I live on the Central Coast of California (near Hearst Castle) and have been beading for about three years. Basically, for me, it’s a great stress releasor! Everything I’ve made has been really for myself (or gifts for co-workers and friends) – I’ll redo some designs 3-4 times just because I can! Part of the fun of beading is the ability to change your mind and recreate a design. I’m self-taught and wish I had more time to really delve into it. I work full-time at a very stressful job and sometimes I’ll come home to unwind by making a necklace or bracelet (with a glass of wine, of course)!
