I'm a stay at home mom and a macrame artist, the little bit of free time I have for myself I like to spend it with my beads! I love working with micro macrame knots and sparkling glass beads and crystals, I find it relaxing. I am originally form Italy and my family background is full of artisans of all sorts, our family origins are from Veneto a region of Italy well known for Artisanal craftsmanship, since kids we were taught to sew, crochet, knit, embroider and create with our hands. My grandfather was a World War II veteran who thanks to his gift of craft was able to feed is family by fixing anything of any kind, and make things out of what was available, which was very little. I'm proud to have inherited some of his gift.
