I bought a kit from That Bead Lady, Cathy Lampole, for her Goddess Beads.
(available at www.thatbeadlady.com) They are made with Swarovski Pearls and Crystals and very addictive to make. I made a bunch for Kristal Wick and then, Kristal bought the pattern and has been making them like crazy. Cathy is the person
responsible for luring me in to the world of bead weaving! After making 5
Goddess Beads, I started playing around with embellishing the base in
different ways. I love making beaded beads.
