Sparked by a pair of earrings in a department store, Glenda decided to embark on a new hobby. Beading! She opened a small retail bead shop shortly after, in 1990, and today that small shop has grown into a glistening oasis of creativity. Glenda, now known as The Bead Goddess, heads up the education department, and is creative director of Crystal Creations Bead Institute, Beads Gone Wild. She teaches over 100 different classes from seed beads to wire and is always perfecting her art. Her greatest joy is to inspire and teach others.
