For this challenge we want to see how you share your beading passion with others. It could be beading in public, wearing your handmade jewelry around town, having beading parties with friends – there are so many ways to spread the word about beading! Cynthia shares her beading passion with our weekly Facebook Live jewelry design challenges and making many of the gorgeous jewelry designs available in our Design Studio

    I would luv to participate in this event. Right now I’m working on a project for a friend, she had breast cancer so I’m making her a bracelet with a pink ribbon, in her colors that she likes.

    My favorite tool is the one-step looper. It makes beading so much faster and it is fun to use.

    My favorite is beading jewelry in general, see a great pattern and then I try it and add something different to make it my idea

    My dream room would be brightly lighted, with large windows facing the ocean, with shelving and draws for all my supply, and a comfortable chair and music. That’s my dream room

    I like to take projects to work with me and work on them during lunch. I haul it it in a tote but this would make it much easier to transport! Right now I’m working with earthy tones.
