One thing that has really astounded me since I began adding beadwork to my repertoire is the number of wonderful bead designers that are out there! I really had no idea there was so much innovative work being done. Not to mention the unbelievable number of stitches there are to learn. I love how all the stitches look so very different and at how they effect the final design of the piece.
I recently discovered this beader, Nancy Cain. Here work is so perfect and beautiful. It is wonderful to have so many inspiring pieces to look at. One other thing I have found is that within the beading community are some of the most helpful people I have ever met. If I ever have any questions, there are usually many people I can turn to who will have the answer.
