Ardetta used to start a new hobby every couple of years. "They seemed to last a whild and then I would put them aside to go back later. I still have the crochet needles I received as a teen and will pop out a doily from time to time."
However, with making jewery Ardetta can just continue to learn new techniques instead of entire new hobbies. Jewelry making also satisfies an urge for bling she's had since being primarily a window shopper. "So now I can do and teach things such as bead crochet, pearl knotting, chain weaving and sawing to name a few. I truly am happy to share what I know with others."
