Marina Konstantinova has loved beading since she was a child. Her pursuit in beadwork began by making toys for herself. Throughout the years, Marina’s adorable toys became popular among her friends – so much so that she quickly turned her enthusiasm for toy making into a tutorial-writing career. Check out a few of her whimsical seed-bead toys below. You can find more of her work and purchase tutorials here.
