After I moved to Island, Maui. My co-worker gave me crystal bracelet for Christmas. From that point on up, I am hook to beads.
I learned how to bead from my co-worker's mom, made bracelets with crystals. First one RAW and I gradually learn how to do from B&B... Peyote Stitch, .... from all the magazines, and Beadwork magazines. I started to challenge myself by doing more things such as Bezeling a rivoli and purchased kits from expert for advance technique. I came a long way and still learning, need more advice, and need more motivation by beading with friends (more fun!).
