"We all started at the same place . . . the beginning. Each one of us held beading thread in one hand and a pile of beads in the other, and we began to string beads! It's amazing where the jewelry-making path takes us after this hope-filled start. Each beader makes different stops along the way: Some embrace crystals, others gemstones with every other bauble thrown into the mix. One day you don't know how to bead, the next day you are an official "beader," and life as you knew it changes forever more." Kristal Wick, Beading Daily Editor
