Here is an opportunity for you to tell a story of your life, or a certain momentous period in your life, a story of your family history or whatever story you wish to relate through the art of beading. This unique work of art will be as beautiful hanging as an art piece on your wall as it will be when you are wearing it. My own Story Telling Frog Necklace retells the tale of a 10-year period in my life from the period I lived in South China to my coming to have the frog as my special amulet - which has lead to where I am today.
