Thank you! I'm excited to be part of this network! I am based in Oxford in the U.K. I wanted to ask the same question of others-what bead -or beads-first gave them the collecting bug!? I've always appreciated beads, but I started collecting in earnest earlier this year when I discovered a beautiful graduated bead necklace in a charity shop and started researching it. It turned out to be amber, and I just found it so amazing that the beads were made from a substance formed millions of years ago.
