Sometimes you read a blog or article that puts into words exactly what you are thinking and just can’t imagine writing it better yourself. We were looking at doing some featured blog posts and immediately came up with this one from Neva Brown that captures what many beaders go through on their beading journey.
Neva is a Sydney based bead artist and contributes to the Bead Maverns blog. Neva has been beading since a child, but took it up more seriously about ten years ago. Since then she has worked in many mediums and successfully sells her work at art shows. A range of tutorials is about to be released too. Neva has been a fundamental part of beading in Australia over the last decade, actively supporting online goups and giving her time tirelessly to the beading world. She is an avid supporter of The Bead Show, which we love !
Here is the blog entry Where Do I Begin?
The points that we particularly like are
- The need to meet up and connect with like minded people, and how to do this.
- Challenge yourself, just start beading and don’t over think it or doubt yourself.
- Participate in events and competitions everyone is worthy.
We (Prue and Jo) met through a bead meet up, so we’d not be doing this (The Bead Show) if it wasn’t for that.
If you are part of an online group or any other beading groups and want to meet up at The Bead Show, email us the details and we’ll set aside a table for you.
Bead Maverns is a collaboration of international bead artists that promote and share ideas, and tutorials.
