I have been making jewelry since I was a child, but only discovered how to make it well during a vacation to Topsail Island.  A little seaside beading shop was a favorite stop for my sisters, the friends we’d brought along, and me.  It was where I learned about the magical little things known as crimp beads that prevent your jewelry from falling apart the way it does when you use knots (like I did as a child).  Upon returning home, I began accumulating my cache of supplies.  A small fortune later, I have quite a nice variety of seed beads, semiprecious stones, and metal findings.  And living where I do now has the added benefit of a beading shop, The Joy of Beading, only three miles away.  I plan to begin selling some of my work on Etsy soon, along with little knitterings and the like.
