It all started with snowflakes - my current iteration of beading I mean. While I have been beading most of my life, but didn't begin working with seed beads so obsessively until about 12 years ago, when I saw a beaded snoflake on the cover of a magazine and had a hankering to try to make one like it. Little did I know at the time that would lead to hundreds of snowflakes, flowers, creatures, jewelry and objects to be woven from seed beads and nylon thread. So snowflakes have a special place in my heart. Not much snow where we live, so it's always seemed fascinating and magical. Plus, I was inspired by Wilson Bentley's microscopic photographs of snow crystals - they are stunningly beautiful - check them out! Pictured here are 3 tiny snowflakes of mine, part of a collection that can be found in my webshop at https://www.amazon.com/handmade/Bead-Spy-Studio.
