Beading requires relatively few tools and cost of beads vary depending on your preference. I enjoy spending time creating small tokens to share with others. I learned beading as a coping mechanism to deal with life's changing events. I was able to stay busy and not think negative thoughts. I used my excess energy to create beautiful handcrafted jewelry.
Beading allows me to take time for myself and create new jewelry pieces. I think beading like many other hobbies provide us a way to manage our unsettled energy. Other hobbies I enjoy is sewing, painting, and currently learning to make fast healthy food. More on that last one next time.
