Fabulous Friday... The Interview ~ The Beading Lady

Yes, it's me, Helen aka The Beading Lady ~ thought I should see if I can answer the questions that I've been torturing everyone else with :-)

How did you get started in your particular craft and how long have you been doing it?
I started making memory wire wrap bracelets about 2 years ago at a jewellery-making party and really enjoyed it. I bought a few bits and bobs and then sold a few. I've been learning new techniques and styles on a regular basis and trying to expand my range.

Are there any negative aspects to doing your craft and if there are how do you work around them?
Time, I just don't seem to have enough of it. Oh and the mess. Little beadies everywhere!

What tips would you give to anyone thinking of starting your craft?
Make sure your tools are fairly decent and start small, find out which style, designs, techniques you enjoy and then you can expand on those.

How did you find Misi?

*blush* I can't remember, isn't that terrible? It was November 2008 and honestly can't remember how, think I may have just stumbled upon it.

What is your favourite item in your own Misi shop?

I think this pendant, really enjoyed making it and love how it turned out.

What is your favourite shop on Misi (besides your own)?

Can't pick one. I'm biased because I quite often enjoy a shop because I like the shopowners. lol

Random Facts about you:

What is your favourite time of day?

First thing in a morning (after the initial "argh, don't wake me") when my kiddies have come for a cuddle.

What was your favourite Christmas present this last Christmas?
My brother came over with this big wrapped up box, and inside were lots of other little wrapped up parcels. Took me ages to unwrap but was totally worth it, inside were loads of different jewellery findings for me to play with :-)

What is your favourite animal?

Always loved dolphins but since losing my baby last year I have a special place in my heart for butterflies, they just became very significant to me for some reason.

What actor/actress would you NOT kick out of bed?

I have to agree with most of the other crafters who have said ~ Johnny Depp!

So, that's me ~ if you'd like to see any more of my creations, please stop by The Beading Lady.
