How long have you been making ceramic beads/jewelry?
I've been working with clay since grade school but really fell in love with it in college! Throwing pots and decorating them was consuming for me! The beads really spun off of that love of decorating of the pots, plus I've always had a deep, deep love of jewelry! I'll blame that obsession on my mom! She's enjoys beading and jewelry as well! I really started focusing on jewelry and clay beads in 2001, after my first child. At the time my job went through big cut backs and layoffs so that gave me the opportunity and drive to focus all of my energy on what I loved!
