My Aunt showed up for her reading last night with a basket full of seed beads from my cousin Dorsey. She sent a note with them saying that she knew that I didn’t use this type of beads in my jewelry but perhaps I could trade them with another beader for something I could use. Little did she know I just got my first seed bead lesson and was itching to get started on practicing. I now have a TON of seed beads of all different colors, and thread and needles to make them into things. The only thing missing from the basket was a lump of beeswax, which, conveniently, Michelle had given me after our lesson. I love my life.
