i am a young woman aged 26 who wants to get her face hands toes my entire body actually in this crazi mystical world of FASHION. I am a beaded jewelry designer from Kanye Botswana. I never studied the art of beading I wasn’t even taught how to bead its something that’s been inside me since my first art class aged 5. I have always been in to art, art class was my escape route from all that was happening around me, I was in my own world where I was free to express my feelings with color. Before I carry on I should tell u that I cant draw to save my life…yep its true even my stick figures neva really look good, color is what I love. Never really considered myself fashion forward but I did turn heads back in my day *lol*. Generally people expect a fuller figured woman to keep themselves covered at all cost but I don’t. I wear what I feel will make me look good for me not 4 any1 else. I started loving and appreciating fashion more in 2007. My confidence level was on a high and that was when my hobby turned into my now passion of making beaded accessories was what I lived for. I loved to look good I have always been a somewhat outcast through out primary and high school, so now that I loved me I wanted to look different. I would dress in outfits no other plus size woman would dare wear, I showed sum leg my arms, would wear tops that didn’t cover my backside, wasn’t even afraid to show some thighage (LOL) people would stare some would shout negative remarks about my sense of style I gave my mom grey hairs but it really made me more confident and appreciate myself more. The beautiful thing is having people come up to me tellin me they look up to me my style I am actually dubbed the *PLUS SIZE FASHIONISTA* in Botswana.
