My First Bead Box

A few days ago, I discovered a dusty old tackle box while cleaning out a closet in my house - it was my first bead box.

When I first started beading, I was instantly addicted and this little plastic box filled up quickly and overflowed into a large basket, which then grew into a spare room in my house.

Here are some forgotten treasures that I found in my first bead box:
  • Gray pearl daisy chain necklace
  • Antiqued copper filligree components
  • hanks of gorgeous Czech 15/0 seed beads
This little old box brought back all the memories of why I started beading, the eagerness to learn all about making jewelry, coming up with new jewelry designs and having fun discovering new beads and the ideas that they inspired. As I look back, I think of how lucky I am to still have the same passion about beading and jewelry design today.  What memories do you have about when you first started beading?
