What Do You Remember Most About Being a Beginner?
the frustration of not finding beads
What Was Your First Beading Book?
French Beaded Flowers by (I think) Virginia
Where Was Your First Beading Class and Who Taught It?
I have yet to live near an area where beading classses are given
What Inspired Me to Start Beading/Beadwork
I couldn't grow african violets, so I beaded them instead
What Was Your First Beadwork Project?
A pot of African Violets in a crocheted milk glass vase for my mother for mothers day, about 1960 or so. Unfortunately when we cleaned her house after her death 20 years ago, no one knows where the beaded flowers went. I have made many more flowers since then as gifts and as decoration, and have graduated into other beaded items: bracelets, amulets, tapesties and miniture rugs and furniture.
