beaded bead necklace curious

I am very honoured to be one of the first 100 teachers on a great new interactive learning website called Curious.com.

Time magazine lists Curious in their top 50 sites for 2013: “This brand-spanking-new site aims to provide an uncommonly inviting place to teach and be taught. Instructors can upload video on any subject — be it salsa dancing or making glogg — then divvy it into lessons. Unlike YouTube, Curious lets teachers choose to charge for lessons, features an oversized playback window and generally feels friendly and constructive. There are no creepy comments from anonymous YouTubers here, and the site’s proprietors currently approve teachers and eyeball content to ensure that these online classes are, well, classy.

Check out my first video for making a beaded pendant…just in time for Mother’s Day!

Custom Necklaces on Etsy…


Spring is on the way (wishful thinking) and soon we’ll be able to wear necklaces without having them covered with scarves, coats, sweaters, etc. I have a variety of necklaces available for sale on Etsy and am always open to custom orders based on your ideas and sketches…I love a challenge!

Here’s the video:
