Thank you for visiting my Amybeads.com website!
In 1994, I ventured into a bead store, Bedazzled in Washington, DC, and wondered to myself, "How can there be an entire store that only sells beads?" It didn't take long to understand. I was captivated at the vast array of beads in different sizes, colors, and finishes. Leaving with a bead kit and some tools, I returned to the store twice that day for more beads...and the rest is history. I love working with all sorts of beads, but seed beads are my favorite. When using seed beads with off-loom beadweaving techniques, the sky is the limit with the types of jewelry and art work that can be created.
In addition to beading, I also enjoy needle felting and watercolor, along with many other crafts. See what I'm up to currently, by visiting my Instagram account: @amybeadscreates.
