I grew up around creative people. I had an aunt who did amazing things with paper, yarn, eggs (she even put on hinges so you could open the eggs up), and other medium. My grandmother painted, my dad tied his own flies (very hard to do having done it myself), and my mom is a fantastic cook (no recipe needed!).
Myself? I have done pottery, macramé, painting, stained glass work, and my favorite, metal smithing. I designed and made numerous jewelry pieces which I sold. However, beading holds a special place in my heart. Please visit the KnottyBead Shopping Site and experience my custom designs for yourself.
