Ligonier bead class helps people see their value
Making jewelry from beads is a hobby for some. For Nettie Wray, 47, of Ligonier, it has helped her heal.
Wray began crafting with beads after an accident left her unable to continue her job as a truck driver. She found the craft gave her a renewed sense of value and turned it into a small business.
On Wednesday, Wray sat at a table at Allegory Gallery in Ligonier, along with owner William Jones, instructor Jen Tuschong and student Cindy Kuhn, seeking advice on the multi-strand necklace she was making.
Jones said classes at the gallery are meant to help everyone find their creativity.
“There’s a sense of value that comes with doing and making and creating something from nothing,” he said. “We wanted to show people that anybody can do it…everyone is creative.”
