Hi! I'm Cindy- the mind and creative marvel behind Stones + Paper
If you spent a second on my home page you would have seen that I am obsessed with seed beads. I love the way they look. I love the way they feel between my fingers as I am stringing them. I have been working with them for as long as I could grasp a crayon.
Most of the seed beads I use are made in Japan and the Czech republic. I also like to shop around for unique seed beads I can pepper my designs with. Beading is a daily craving I continually give into.
I also love hand made paper goods, graphic arts and home decor. I spend a great deal of time traveling down those avenues. I feel a special type of nostalgia related to sending cards and letter to people. It really shouldn't be a dying art and I am here to do my part keeping this form of "hello" alive and kicking. Who does not enjoy getting happy mail? Its such an easy and affordable way to reach out!
I reside in the Pacific Northwest. The Seattle area. On the "other" side of the water. In the beautiful waterside town of Poulsbo. I have the beach and the forest in one town. When the clouds clear, I even have a clear shot of Mount Ranier.
The inspiration for my designs are right outside my windows.
This is me with my favorite fruit- the magnificent peach. I'm a California girl in a Washington world. I live for summer and peach season.
Peach, love and light to each and every one of you! ❤️
