I began beading after much prompting for over a year from my friend Helen to join her craft group. I finally gave in and took a beginners beading course in Feb 2008 and I have never looked back. Beading is now my passion! My design ideas come from many sources such as nature, books and just people themselves. I enjoy the challenge of designing unique pieces using all mediums but have a weakness for polymere clay, fresh water pearls and Swarovski crystals.
I have won First, Second and Third prizes in the ActewAGL Royal Canberra Show and the Sydney Royal Easter Show. I also came 9th out of 10 in the Swarovski Creative Beading Awards (national). I enjoy the challenge each year of creating something special for these events.
