I’m a retired Kindergarten teacher and had only a passing acquaintance with beading until 4 years ago. After my husband of almost 40 years passed away I was left with too much time on my hands. It was at that point I discovered a local bead shop that had classes for beginners. I took a class and discovered that beading is habit forming. My jewelry cup runneth over and I am seriously involved in setting up a web site.
