I am a postal worker (mail handler), who got hooked on making jewelry when I perchased a chain maille piece at a local artisan show. I just knew I could do that if I could find the jump rings. I never gave up and about two years later, I finally found what I needed through a magazine. Then I decided I needed beads to go with my chain maille. Now I am totally addicted. When I’m not at work, I read or bead! My 17 year old son, and my 15 year old daughter love some of my creations(chain maille hacky sak), and my daugter is learning to bead and create right beside me. She is even teaching what she knows to other people! My husband just thinks I’m nuts, but loves me anyhow.
