wow, Jaiho, you life seems so colorful. I learned how to make bead handiworks several months ago, but I find it's hard to make money from it, I only took it as an interest. I hope I can make my living from it also, that will be my ideal job. Pls kindly share with me if there is oppotunity. Thank you very much.

you can start by presenting your work to your friends and from them you can start selling.I started like that,i make some coin purse and try selling it to my friends and that was a surprise becoz they like it and ordered some as a present.Especially now that x-mas session is coming.Some friends are starting to make orders.Last Sunday one of my friend's friend ordered pouch(crochet)15 pcs.that would be her gifts to her co-workers.Isn't great...and last month i already recieved orders of pouches also 50 pcs,she's a gym instructress and she will give those pouches to her clients. You can start now my friend and i am sure,you can also make a living with it.It's not that big,but it helps while you are enjoying what you are doing. Cheers

Hi Jaiho, Thank you for your sharing. I will try that. Sometimes I am just shy and not good at selling. Anyway, I would like to have a try. :)
