The sparkly gems we know as diamonds started out as lumps of black coal. They were buried deep in the earth and experienced great pressure. In the end, after they are handled by skilled crafts people, they become the glistening gems we call a "Girl's best friend".
But their lives, like ours, are a journey. Along the way, we search for wisdom, understanding and clarity. Our path takes many twists and turns as does the facets and sides of a diamond.
It is only after we have journeyed for a long time, with a good heart and good intentions that we, like the diamond clearly see that our actions are reflected in nature and the world around us.

Thanks for "bouncing in" to my little corner of the world. I promise, it will be worth the effort. My given name is Beth Rudy, but my native name is "Bouncing Wolf". This was inspired by my love of a certain orange and black Disney character, and my 5-year-old golden-lab of the same name -- Tigger. We both have a very hard time keeping our feet on the ground when we get excited.
And nothing excites me more than a new creative idea. Many times, my creative mind moves faster than my hands can ever keep up with.
Rest assured that all of my patterns have been fully tested by me! I don't use a bead fairy. Each pattern is shown with a photo of the finished piece that I have beaded from the pattern.
So, check back often for new patterns. When my creative muse strikes, watch out!!!
Thanks for shopping with me.
