We chat to Susan, give you a chance to win the book and learn how-to make a sea glass necklace.
Hi! I'm Susan, I live in Portland, Oregon, and I'm a writer who loves to make things. My blog is called West Coast Crafty, and I also teach log cabin quilting for Creativebug and beginning sewing for kids for CreativeLIVE. I love sew, embroider, quilt, and make terrariums, but my first big craft love was really jewelry-making. I moved to Portland after college to go to jewelry-making school, and learned casting and fabrication, and started a little business called susanstars selling my work, while I was also teaching sewing and crafts. In 2008 I wrote my first solo book, Bead Simple, which was a collection of 150 modern jewelry and accessories projects to make. Six books and two kids later, I got the chance to write a sequel to that very first book - Bead Sparkle!
I'm an often confused illustrator who loves spending my time being all curled up in my well watching cartoons, reading children books & comics whenever I'm not creating characters and pictures.
