Finally a Real Web Site of My Own

I have needed a web site of my own for a long time.  I made inquiries 3 years ago of my son, but he was not interested in doing it for me.  I even tried bartering jewelry for help in making one.  That didn't work either.  I made a promise to myself that the first snow day this year, after finding the web site Weebly.com, that I would concentrate on this task.  Well so have it, the first snow day was two days after my first cataract surgery, so I didn't much feel like it.  But since then I have made some progress.  The site is easy to use and I am still tweaking some things, but fairly pleased so far.  Check it out at Beadroe.com.

Since my last post, I have also concentrated on learning to use the Jim Moore coring tool that I bought used.  The learning curve is very manageable.  I am pretty pleased with my results.  Here are some of my first tries.
All of these beads are fairly big and would be best suited to hang from a chain rather than be on a European charm bracelet.

I would welcome any feedback on these beads or my new website.

Thanks for looking.
