I volunteered to write an essay for the March Issue of the Crafts Report in which the Insight Section is dedicated to Beads.
It's available online now.

A longer version of my submission is available in an earlier post here.
The Crafts Report online is quite resourceful in that a multitude of articles is available to the public (at no charge). Go to its Column Categories Section and read about photography, marketing, business basics and more.
