Certified Bead Lady

Ive just finished my first Nouveu Collection, and it's nice to see them all laid out in front of you, like I were looking at a chest of golds and jewels.

I have never realized I could make such pieces, and I want to hit myself for not starting doing beads and accessories few months back when I got all the time in the world.

I just realized that beading is not just about stringing beads and holding pliers. There's skills and dexterity in bending wires and hooks, creativity in making designs and choosing your materials, patience and acceptance when making mistakes, and practically wasting your precious materials. Right now, I only have passion.. and I would like to think I have the creativity and patience which enable me to make my first nouveu piece after 10 years:

Isn't that lovely?
