As a Beadwork subscriber for the past 20 years, Peterson has been able to spend more time with beading in the last several years since retiring. She is even selling her work on Etsy and at craft shows through United Maine Craftsman as Beadingbabes shop.

Q: Why did you choose this bracelet design and this color way?
A:
The project appealed to me because of the swirling design. I chose my color ways because I wanted sparkle and yet have some color variation.

Q: What did you need to do in order to turn the bracelet into a necklace?
A:
The necklace required modifying the bracelet pattern to keep the outer rows enlarging and yet relatively flat.
