Lastly, would you please share something of your choice with our readers.
My bead room is my sanctuary. At times it has literally ‘saved my life’. You see, besides the cancer and my husband’s stroke, I’ve suffered from severe arthritis and fibromayalgia for many years (I’m 59 with the spine of an 85-yr-old says my neurosurgeon). Just doing this interview at my computer hurts, but it has been so much fun—took my mind off the pain for a little while.
I love my bead room even though it’s just a big organized mess—unless there’s a sizable earthquake that is. That’s when my bead towers come a tumblin’ down, and then the mess is no longer organized. Ack!!
I want to sincerely thank all the incredible ceramic artists out there—you do more than you realize—you make people like me happy. I seriously suggest to those who need distraction in their lives—beading can be an excellent pain reliever. And there’s just something about working with ceramic pieces that makes one happy.
