Hi, my name is Jane and I’m a beadaholic. It all started when a friend gave me a necklace she made and I nearly took it apart to see how she made it. Jumprings! What a clever idea! I admired whoever first thought of them. Went online and found a world of bead sellers, some helpful tutorials, visited a local bead shop, discovered those hyper-euphoric events called “Gem Faires”… and I was permanently hooked.
For most of my life I never realized how stunningly beautiful a simple piece of jasper can be. *sigh* That was just the beginning…
Oh – and I live in Los Angeles. I guess that’s important. *looks out the window* Yep, I’m still in L.A.
