Swarovski Flower Lattice Bracelet

Heather has been a beader for about 8 years. She and her husband went on vacation to the Outer Banks of North Carolina. There she discovered a bead store and from then on she was hooked. She spent so much time in that bead store that the owner gave her a set of tools for free. She started off just stringing and then broadened her creativity with stitching. She loves them all: peyote, spiral, ndebele, and many others. She loves being able to play with the colors and different sizes and shapes of the beads. Recently she started to experiment with bead embroidery making her first collar this past year for her mother for Christmas. It was very stressful at first, but she found she loved manipulating the beads in different directions and being able to control the sizes of the beads. She is a Registered Nurse and loves people and animals. Heather feels very fortunate that she could find a hobby she loves, and that helps her relieve the stress of her job
