My name is Cynthia Kimura. I am the President and co-owner of Artbeads.com and have been making jewelry for the past 12 years. I never thought that I would become a jewelry designer, but now there isn't a day when I don't think about my next jewelry project. I love beads of all sorts and don't think it's possible to ever have too many. Of the many unique styles that are out there, I must say that my favorites are Mixed Media and Steampunk. I'd like to share with you some of my favorite products to help inspire your next idea.
