I have told you earlier how I got to be a seedbeadaholic. It all started when I started getting a lot of physical health problems. Bad back for the most part, but also problems in lots of my joints with bad cartilage.
Up until 2008 music was a big part of my life. I was a singer in a choir for 4 years and lead singer in a band for 2 years. I was taking piano lessons and singing lessons in the meantime. But my problems forced me to find another pass time.
So that made me to the passionate beader I am today. Hardly any day goes by without me giving in to my seed bead addiction. It's not so much the bigger beads but the tiny seed beads I mostly work with.
In the beginning I worked with patterns off course. But as I developed more skills my mind started to go crazy. It woke me up in the middle of the night with new patterns that just appeared in my head. And the weird thing is I still remembered them next morning. I never put anything on paper but I just started working and 9 times out of 10 it came out the way I imagined it to be.
That's how it was in the beginning and still is at the moment except for the fact that I don't wake up from the many patterns in my brain anymore. I still regularly use patterns from others, because they inspire me to make my own.
So let me show you some of my very own creations
