I was in Santa Fe, New Mexico working as a traveling nurse & my youngest daughter traveled with me. On my weekend off, we went exploring (synonymous with SHOPPING) & came across a bead store. Several hours & a lot of dollars later, we exited the shop with packages filled with hanks of brilliantly colored seed beads, fresh water pearls, gemstone beads, beading needles, & all of the other necessary equipment to turn us both into true bead addicts!
Beading became my salvation when I suffered a back injury & still helps me deal with the chronic pain that resulted.
Beading is an art that is truly a Magnificent Obsession!... An addiction that no one who shares it wants to be cured of... A passion that gives so many beaders who suffer from chronic illness something to take their minds off the disease & its symptoms... And, I still believe if we could get all of the virus creating hackers out there started with beading, they wouldn't want to waste time doing such things!!!
