Jamie North lives in Calgary, Alberta, Canada where she has been an avid beader, jewellery designer and instructor for more than 5 years.
"The concept for this bead developed from my love of animals ... in particular, dogs ... but all animals. Love for our pets is something people around the world have in common.
Many of the qualities and behaviour we admire most in our fellow man are ones that we can learn from our much loved pets - loyalty, forgiveness, being non-judgmental, acceptance, humility, having the ability to love unconditionally to name just a few. The world would be a better place if we could all be the kind of person our pets THINK we are."
