My first encounter with the BeadBookcame when I won a competition and one of my prizes were a free two year subscription of the magazine. The editor Christa van Rooyen wanted me to do a bracelet with pearls for them. Needless to say, this had been one of my most
popular designs I ever did. When I design and write a pattern, I try to write a project that can be completed by all skill levels.
first project I did for Threads&Crafts, a very long time ago . The stress nearly killed me, I was so nervous. Luckily, Annine van Rooyen, the editor, was a fantastic lady. She guided me through the process.
This is my eight piece set of decorations, made with love. Paula Adams is a star - I adore her creations. Thanks for sharing your patterns with us, Paula. The centre bell I designed, it did not come too easy, but Viola! I love it.
