Why seeds.

Marcia DeCoster posted a question on her blog:
"To my fellow seed beaders I'm curious about your attraction, why seeds?"
I'm continuing the Laura McCabe love with my next project.

I find working with needle and thread (or needle and Fireline as the case may be) to be very relaxing. It's can get lost in the repetitive quality of stitching with beads. It's amazing to me that that these tiny little beads can be woven into so many extraordinary things. Sometimes the challenge of trying to figure out a pattern is half the fun.

The color, texture, and sparkle keep me intrigued and coming back for more.

I recently found a new passion: silversmithing. I love hammering the silver. Crazy but very therapeutic!

This is very cool. I love seed beads, but I'm not good at working with them at all! I appreciate those who have a talent in this area. :0D
