How Blue Dot got its name
When first learning to bead I usually ended a piece with a round of blue dots because it was the only element that would fit in my unplanned designs. Starting a project I'd be afraid of messing up so I did the only thing I knew, a row of blue dots. When I'm feeling lost and don't know how to begin or end, a round of blue dots always comforts me.
Where Cynthia got her name
Born and raised in Oklahoma, Cynthia Masterson now lives and beads in Seattle, Washington. She carries the name of her great-great-great grandmother Cynthia Ann Parker, mother of Quannah Parker, one of the last Comanche chiefs. She is an enrolled member of the Comanche tribe and a Titchywy decendant.
When she’s not traveling to Oklahoma to see family and friends you’ll find her walking Sweeps, the whippet, with her husband Bret of twenty plus years. She beads anywhere, showing the 3-drop gourd stitch to everyone she meets.
