As If By Magic, I Began Making Beaded Jewelry

One spring morning, May 1st to be exact, I awoke mumbling "I need to make beaded earrings" Well, having thought I was awakened in the middle of a dream I tried to kind of forget my mumblings and go on with my day. But that was not to be and I was haunted by the feeling that I needed to make beaded earrings. The unusual thing about this of course, was that I had never made anything even resembling jewelry in my entire life. In fact, I rarely even wore any type of jewelry, especially beaded. But the feeling persisted in such a strong fashion that I started looking on line for some type of instruction on making a child's beaded earring project. Fortunately, with the internet at my fingertips, I had access to countless beading project instructions as I patiently and slowly paged through many many sites, soaking up these instructions, terms, mediums etc. I got in my car, drove to my nearest craft store for a few items and supplies. Well, the rest is history in these short few years . I now have a wonderful store on ETSY and am happily following my "instruction" to make beaded earrings, as well as handcrafting many other pieces of interest. I find it fun, theraputic and creative as yet another way to express myself

Here is the link to my ETSY store if you'd like to stop by and browse around. It's called MYBEADCREATIONS . I've been adding lots of new earrings, bracelets, necklaces, keychains and crystal suncatchers ...and having a ball doing it!
