Tefnut's Profile

Welcome to InspiringBeads.

I am Tefnut. I became aware of the beauty of beads in the seventies while walking down a street in the bead district of Manhattan NYC. Looking through the windows, I became fascinated by what I saw, not knowing beads would become a part of my life to the fullest ten years later.

Welcome to InspiringBeads.

I am Tefnut. I became aware of the beauty of beads in the seventies while walking down a street in the bead district of Manhattan NYC. Looking through the windows, I became fascinated by what I saw, not knowing beads would become a part of my life to the fullest ten years later.

I worked for a few top designers in New York, eventually branching out on my own, designing my own lines for eight years. I grew tired of designing and took a break, until one of my suppliers asked me to work for his company. I found pleasure once more working with beads from another angle, that of selling directly to designers, hobbyist and others who indulged in some form of creativity with beads.

Having an eye for detail and color, I enjoyed assisting designers with their bead choices, recommending different styles, colors and textures, they loved my recommendations! Some showed me their work after completion and I must state, people sure do create some amazing things with beads!

Well, it's about thirty plus years and now I have ventured onto an online presence, continuing my work with beads. I look forward to connecting with you on this leg of my bead journey, bringing you wonderful beads for your creative pleasure. Meanwhile, have tons of fun beading!
