As I am gathering all the supplies for my upcoming classes at Bead and Button, I am remembering my first beads. I have been working in clay for the past 19 years. I only started making beads 7 years ago. These are my first ceramic beads along with some glass beads that I made also. I started making glass beads for fun and had the realization that I should be making ceramic beads. After all clay is the medium I love. I have come along way over the years, but these weren't a bad start.
