Why I like Bead Artists Who Really Make Their Own Beads, in other words, BUY TRULY HANDMADE THIS SEASON! Part 2!

Let me give you some examples of handcrafted art!

Candice makes some amazing dread beads.  She also works in polymer clay.  Take a look at her polymer clay cuff bracelets!  Wow!  I wish I could make them like she does!
