I am a self taught beader and love to create handmade jewelry. I have also started to dabble in beading "art" items, such as dolls/beaded figerines and masks. My current facination is bead embroidery, a technique I have loved for ages and have recently started to learn. You can check out my work at www.abeadedworld.etsy.com. I am also a proud member of the Etsy Beadweavers Team. You can check out their blog at: http://www.etsy-beadweavers.blogspot.com. Thanks for looking!
