Am going to tell you a story here,back then in secondary school i had this friend a girl to be precise, she had this passion for bead making and i was a bead lover.
Majority of my friends too were bead lovers. So this particular girl will make a tie with bead and brings it to school you need to see the way me and friends fight for it and the highest bidder for the day goes home with it. lol i was a rich kid sha

Now when i got out i decided to make an investigation on how much this beads cost and i was amazed at how much this girl was making weekly from us she buys a bead of #500 and use it to make a belt that she later sells to us #2500. and she sells nothing less than 3 of this beads products weekly in school.
