I've always loved art since I was young. I paint in real media (acrylics, oils and watercolor), and I was a digital scrapbook designer also. About 6 months ago my sister sent me a huge box of jewelry making stuff: beads, findings, books, wire, you name it! I had NO CLUE what to do with it and I am now learning how to make beautiful things with my hands! I was so tired of spending hours and hours on the computer and wanted to do more things hands-on. So I closed up my shop and want to do more "real" art.
