Alicia of Wyred on Wire reminds me a little of myself in that I started with elastic cord and pony beads and once hooked, the beads and supplies just became more sophisticated and expensive. We haven't put them down since!
Alicia says of herself and her work:
I was born and partially raised in NB Canada, I fell in love at the tender age of eight when as a christmas gift my grandparents gave me a large beading kit. From then on I was always making some form of jewelry or another. I still very much love making jewelry, the only thing thats changed is my range of materials from plastic stretch cord and plastic pony beads to sterling silver and precious stones. Recently I have realized as an artist you can't completely limit your materials and be happy for too long and I have many ideas for fresh and unique designs using a variety of materials. Each piece of jewelry I make is an extension of myself to you. There's no mass produced here, just pieces that are as unique and special as you are.
I am a proud member of Etsy Moms street team and Etsy Bags.
