Bead & Button Show - 2009
It is once again June in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and we have arrived at the Bead&Button Show, this time with my sister and youngest niece. This is already the ninth year of this annual event, which attracts teachers and students, sellers and buyers, and company representatives from all over the world. Many of these people are highly dedicated beaders who can bead while eating or drinking, walking or talking, flying or driving. And while they sleep they bead in their dreams.

I have always been interested in any kind of handwork: crocheting, knitting, tatting, and my latest beading and micromacrame. I remembered a little from the late 60s, and 70s from making pot hangers etc. Once I started with beads, I just had to combine the two. I hope you like my efforts as much as I like doing them.

“The art lies on the verge of similarity and difference. Complete similarity isn’t original, but difference is a fraud. There are lots and lots of artificial roses in the world at this minute, you are adding one more. What for? Yours shouldn’t be like others.“ Alexander Kramarenko.
