One bead at a time

Seed beading isn't fast; it takes days, or even weeks, to complete some projects. I'm not talking love beads any more! Yup, that's where I started, way back when: long strings of multicolored seed beads, daisy chains, and shoulder duster earrings. Worn with distressed cotton skirts and tiny Ts, the clothes I still love best.

How many of us secretly (or not so secretly) still yearn for our high school and college styles? I love going to the town of Woodstock, New York; tie dye and my Stevie Nicks skirts and tops are still in many of the stores there. Yup, I own several of them, and I wear them. My beadwork may be different these days, but I still love the fashions of the late 60s and early 70s.

Those were the days.
