It all started out very innocently. A friend, who I had not seen for many years came to visit and she brought a gift for me. It was a keyring that she had made herself and it had the most beautiful focal bead that I had ever seen. Well that was the beginning of the bead obsession. I went off to the bead shops and saw what I had been missing and as is usual with me - I did not want one I wanted many!!!
I started selling the necklaces simply so that I could make more!
Last year I discovered Polymer clay and a new monster was unleashed. I love working with the clay. Naturally when I look back at the beads that I made in the beginning I can not believe that I was so pleased with them - now they are so ugly. Oh well - more fun to be had... so off I go.
