Hi, I'm Sandra and I'm a Dutch beading addict. I've been beading as long as I can remember, mostly with seedbeads. I love beadweaving and I design and create all kinds of jewelry, mostly with a classic look. I hope you will like my patterns and tutorials, and that I will hear from you again! Love, Sandra
