What made you decide to go into bead making?
I have always wanted to be self-employed and the creation of hand-made things appealed to me. When I saw the constructive intricacies of single beads coming together in sequence and styles, I was amazed by the kind of beauty it radiates when adorned.
How long have you been doing it?
2 years and counting.
Was it something you always wanted to do?
Hummmmmm………….that’s a tough one. I really wanted to do a lot of things but for now, this one holds my fancy and am doing good at it.
Is it an easy business to do? If not, what inspires you to keep doing it?
It requires a whole lot of patience, calculations and creativity besides my joy knows no bound when my customers are awed and satisfied with my creations.
