Hi, I'm Natalie in Evanston, Il. I've just found 'Beading Daily' -- completely accidentally. ...
I've been beading on and off my whole life, beginning as a kid in Tucson, Arizona, fascinated by American Indian beadwork.
I built a loom as a teenager in Durham, North Carolina; among my
'creations' as an adolescent was a heavy-duty beaded guitar strap for
my then boyfriend. (Only afterwards did I learn what an awl was.)
Most recently I've been doing bead embroidery and learning various
off-loom beadweaving techniques, as well as incorporating beads into
constructed books and other crafts.
