I love beading! :)

Why did I create the Blog, and YouTube Tutorials?

My parents have always taught me to share things with others. This is me sharing the talent of beading with all who are interested. I want to share this Talent I have learned with others, so they can learn too! I have it for display in hopes that I might be able to help and inspire others who are interested in beading! Because this way, others can make their own jewelry with out having to pay for it, and be proud that they did it themselves! :)
*Remember that people have their own ways of doing things, this is the way that I am comfortable beading.
** This is a hobby for me, it is something I do as a stress reliever and for fun.. all while putting my heart into it <3
Feel free to comment on the posts you like! I enjoy the feedback.. If you have any questions, please ask and I will respond.
Thank You! Kristen Sally

SHAWLS

I also make Shawls.. 
There are two shawls here.. 

The turquoise one below is one that I made in High School (like 2008, maybe) for this one lady. 
My Native American Adviser needed one quick, and she asked me to do one,
since I had made one for myself when I was tribal royalty.
 This shawl has a simple large water design that is applique and sewed on with black and white fringe. 
The material is a heavy-ish polyester and satin applique.. 
I remember when they were presenting it to her I heard people around me saying oh that's pretty lol 
and I was too shy to say I made it 
 Here is that one.. 



And this one I made a couple weeks ago for a girl that graduated from 8th grade.
 In AZ, its kind of a big thing when you graduate from 8th grade, especially if you're Native..
 I also made her a dress that matched this shawl.. 
The shawl is a glittery satin material with white crepe back satin applique. 
You can't really see, but this is a small mountain river design with all white fringe. 
She loved it and the mother was really touched that her daughter was going to be able to represent her culture at her graduation.. 
Made me smile and feel good haha.. 
Here it is..
