I’m a self-taught beader and enjoy it for the therapy and creativity it provides. I enjoy working with all kinds of stones, gems, and chain. My sister-in-law actually got me started and has proclaimed that she created “a monster beader”! She lives in Taiwan so has provided me with many beautiful stones and chains from the Jade Market in Taipei.
Lima Beads is my favorite beading website–they make it creative and fun and allow for activities other than beading so kudos to them for a fun site–especially the addictive world of fresh picks.
