I’ve been beading for about 17 years now. More recently over the past 4 or 5 years, I’ve enjoyed trying new crafts like sewing.
If I remember rightly, I started with elastic bracelets and handbag charms. The lovely thing is, I still enjoy making them now too! They’re perfect for gifts.
It’s all happened by chance really and it’s been a wonderful journey. I’ve been demonstrating on Create & Craft for 8 years now and becoming the Jewellery Ambassador has been a real highlight for me.
I’ve actually worked for craft companies for about 11 years, but before that I was a nanny. It kept me very busy, but I absolutely loved it.
Use unique materials or colour combinations, be bold and make a statement, and play with textures and dimensions. I personally love mixing natural materials like wood with high polished beads like crystals. It makes a real impact and shows both materials beautifully! I even do it with my home decor too!! (My little obsession!)
