Kim has been creating bead projects for as long as she can remember. Over twenty years ago, she had the idea to cash in her 401K, abandon the corporate system, and start a bead store. Knot Just Beads is the result of that idea. These days, Kim is the Wizard of Beads and is often referred to as the "Mother Ship." When the new CzechMates system became available, Kim quickly adapted her knowledge of beads to these two-hole versions. Most in the bead world depend on appropriation for their success; Kim, however, treasures innovation above all else to distinguish Knot Just Beads from most others.
