Hi, I'm a newbie here, finally moving from observing to participating. I jumped on board at the last minute and am hoping I didn't bite off more than I can chew. I have been a beader for about 5 years, starting out as embellishments for quilts and on to weaving and stringing jewelry. The past 6 months I've been watching and drooling over the many beautiful pieces displayed and wishing I were a part of such creativity. So-----here I am. I look forward to learning new technics and stretching my creativity.
