Judith A. Bean

I was born with arts and crafts in my blood. I have done and tried almost everything in this large field. Early years were spent with oil paints on canvas and then every other kind of paint. As family grew, I continued with fiber and weaving, and on and on. Then I got involved with leather and Indian-style handi-work, which needs beads. Oh my! If I had known!

This led me to earrings and a search for well-made, but not too costly, beads. When I found Fire Mountain Gems and Beads I stopped searching. I find beadwork to be the most relaxing thing I've ever done.

I've learned a lot over the years and continue to improve and branch out in my bead work. Thankfully, all my "things" continue to sell and I look forward to the time when I can stop working and do nothing but BEAD!
