Beading is a passion.
I don't know how many times I've said and
heard others say "beading gives me a purpose.
Now explaining the purpose of beading is a whole other thing!!
We bead because we like making things, pretty things.
Beading keeps our hands busy when we can't do anything else.
We bead because it calms us down. Sometimes beading goes beyond just calming us, beads helps put the pain aside.
I think it has something to do with the counting, and the rhythm.
Beading can be very addicting!!
First, beads draw you in with their pretty colors, all their hues, and the feel of the beads can be enticing. Smooth, rough, tiny, some are almost perfect and others are "all wobbly". Sometimes beads even make me laugh.
