About me …. Leah McWilliams works with a variety of beads large and small, old and new. Over a decade ago, needing a way to release stress, I bought a beading magazine and started creating some simple strung bracelets and necklaces. After a while, I started taking classes to learn various beading techniques. I went quickly from a beginner to a skilled beader. Now, I have a large collection of beautiful beaded bracelets and necklaces that I wish to make available to you.
