Our craft of choice in those days was beading. Grandma showed me several techniques I hadn't learned yet, and she helped me solve problems as I encountered them.
As time progressed, I was able to figure out some things about myself as an artist. I started branching out a bit and learning other techniques such as macrame, kumihimo, wire work, and most recently, silver smithing.
I love being able to learn new things and teach some things to others. I love having a fun and relaxing hobby that has brought me closer to both my family and other artistic individuals. Finally, I love having a better appreciation for art and beauty in its various forms.
