Cheryl taught herself how to bead on a loom when she was a child and never looked back. While her true love is seed beads, the seemingly never-ending supply of new styles, shapes, colors, and textures of beads has opened so many new avenues of designing that is more fun, challenging and interesting. The future of seed beads and related beads looks bright and promises to continue to reach new horizons.
