How/When did you start beading?
Where do you usually bead and how many hours a day do you usually spend beading?
What inspires you as a beader?
I've noticed you usually plan and think a lot before making a new beadwork piece. Have you ever started to bead without a plan? What did you get in the end?
Do you have a strong aversion to any colors? Colors that are hard for you to design with? A strong preference? I don't believe I lean towards certain colours. I merely choose colours according to each subject as it exists in reality. It seems that I have a strong preference for hot colours, such as red & orange, but I think this is coincidental.
