I live in Rhode Island. I love to be with my dogs and do rescue work with my sister. I work as a short order cook (not fun) now but I’m still looking. I started beading about 3 yrs ago when I was out of work from another job for knee surgery. I am so glad I found something I truly love. I kind of just picked it up. I never took a class but would like to. All my friends tell me I have a natural talent because I do many other crafty things also. I think I have found jewelry to be my favorite besides getting my hands dirty in the yard. I have 3 dogs and would love to just live on an island and collect them all and let them be free, animals should never be chained. Some people should be. This site is the best I have found, I love to see other creative people out there like me.
