Personal

I started beading a few years ago. It was something I wanted to do in the past but never got around to it. My husband is in the millitary so when he went away for a 1 year tour to Korea I decided at that time this would be my opportunity to start. We were living in El Paso, TX at the time. I did not know many people and learning to make jewelry would keep me busy and distracted until he returned. One thing I’ve learned about jewelry making is that it’s very addictive but I enjoy it so much. I have not sold a lot of my pieces only a few to some people i’ve worked with and a few to family when i visit. I have made tons of pieces but just have not found where to sell them. My husband and I recently moved to Hawaii 2 months ago and i’m still transitioning. My future goal is to be my own boss and work from home. I am hoping what started as a hobby would turn into my home business. I am currenlty working as an independant sells representative for avon which is pretty neat. I can also earn some extra cash as well and use the dollars to buy more beads!

    OK, I tried looking at your photo with a magnifying glass (don’t ask!) — is that you in front? I wish these profile pix could be enlarged! LOL

    Hey, Z!

    I took classes at my local bead shop to learn to make the glass fused pendants. Do you have one near you? Another possibility would be a glass or stained glass shop. I’ll be glad to help with any advice or tips you might need, but it really helps to learn from someone who knows all about the different kinds of glass and can teach you the basics first.
