"My love of beads began 17 years ago. I am fascinated by the human story they tell, the nature of the beads, the hands that created and traded them.
This love for beads has led me from my early discovery of the vast bead history available and the opportunity to learn the skills required to create beautiful jewelry myself. I later opened the first bead store in Galena, Illinois and taught more than 20,000 women (and a few men) to bead.
As my knowledge grew I wanted to share it further and wrote five books about beading for the craft industry. Along the way I have made many dear friends and have been fortunate to be inspired by many leading designers. You can visit me here at OneHealingStone on Etsy or on Facebook at my jewelry designers group: Crafting Jewelry Inspiration." - Susan Ray
