It's Time!

"Feminism hasn’t failed, it’s just never been tried."
— Hilary Mantel

I've been wanting to add more quotes and women's history to the blog for awhile.  Since my beady life has such an overlap with feminism and history, it feels like a natural mix.  I'm also often inspired by quotes.  I use quotes when I teach and when I bead.  Working on a way to include more quotes in my work... the design challenge for the next year.

On Wednesdays, I'm going to post a quote.  Most likely, a feminist quote or from a woman in history.  Let's face it, women's words are too often forced into the background or ignored all together.  Time to change that.

I'd love to hear how the quotes inspire you.


  1. I am looking forward to reading your quotes.

  2. What an awesome quote, Skylar! Whether it was said yesterday or decades ago, it's true today.
