I have been making jewellery for over 14 years now and love it :D I have gone through many different styles and phases in my jewellery journey; simply stringing and securing beads in different patterns, wire wrapping, pearl knotting, bead weaving and then finally I became interested in the concept of making my own beads.
I went to a weekend course at 'Born to bead' in 2014 and was hooked. I have been making my own beads since!
Each bead is individually (and carefully!) made in a very hot flame and is then directly placed in a kiln to slowly cool for several hours for durability.
