EH: Tell us how you started beading?
I started to create bead jewelry by accident. I created a web site and I have nothing to put up there because I still was waiting for my merchandise to arrive. So I decided to create bead jewelry and put them up at my site until my merchandise from the USA arrives. Luckily my friends liked my jewelry. So I pursued to do more and learn more about bead jewelry making. I still bead until now.
