Jewelry Designer Kristie Jones says she has a hard time deciding whether she likes making jewelry more than shopping for the jewelry components in the first place! She definitely has a flair for taking simple elements and doing something classic and attractive with it.
Some of her favorite beads are Swarovski crystals, and anything shiny with lots of bling factor. She appreciates gemstones as well, even to the point of learning about the mining, cutting, shaping, and polishing processes.
Kristie has been beading for about 4 years.
