hi i just joined this community today. i have been lurking around other beaders' websites and got really interested for various reasons.
My name's Cheryl, i study at UC (or will be in like a week's time), majoring in politics and criminology. the first time i saw someone's beading project was on www.kitta.net, and i thought "wow, i want to make my own jewellery too" because i can't seem to find the right earrings for myself. i don't wear other jewellery though, due to possible allergies/sensitivities around my neck and wrists.
I bought some new beads today from bead needs, and when they arrived, i will start figuring out how to bead from there :) i know that sounds like an expensive way to start, but i popped by lin and craft and whatever starter kit they had seemed to be spoilt/ruined by some crazed person.
