Susan Sassoon of SoSassySusanSassoon started out like most of us.  Susan who is from Wantagh, New York, confessed, "Beading started out as a hobby and became an obsession!"

She is an architect by profession. What was just a hobby became something more when she started to get requests for tutorials. 

Susan says, "As an architect, creating patterns comes naturally to me, as all of my patterns are easy to follow and include visual diagrams as well as step by step written instructions. Before I post patterns, they are tested by friends from beading groups and revised to make sure that they are as easy to follow as possible."

You can see her architectural background in the structural elements of her designs and also in the way she uses less commonly used beads.

Also noteworthy are her two patterns for beaded business card holders - shown at the end.

Note that Susan provides teaching licenses for instructors. Just what every beader needs!  Or you could make one for your friend and she will be forever reminded of you!
