Week Two: Linda Roberts

We've had a little schedule change at The Best Little Bead Box.  Today, Marcia DeCoster will personally hand the box over to Linda Roberts who is attending a workshop at Marcia's studio.  (Leslie Frazier will receive the box next month.)

Here's a little more about Linda, in her own words:

Dream ~ Design ~ Create

Those 3 words really get me excited. My beading path is paved with an interest in rocks and minerals – finding treasures from the earth. This interest led to joining a Gem and Mineral Society and taking classes in creating cabochons, silver work and wire wrapping. Attending a lot of Gem Shows led me to beads and stringing and along the way I learned about Metal Clay, Polymer Clay and Glass Fusing. I have been dreaming, designing and creating with beads for about 11 years now. I have learned most of what I know from magazines and books so I owe a debt of gratitude to all those who shared their knowledge and insights. I love diversity and to be able to create with a variety of mediums. After working as an elementary school teacher, an office manager and a corporate controller, I am happy now to simply call myself “an artist.”

Linda not only uses beads in her works, she creates it wouldn't be surprising to find some wonderful dichroic glass pieces added to the box by her. It will be fun to see how the contents of the box change. Stay tuned!
