Lee Castle's Profile

About

My name is Lee Castle and I live on the beautiful Gold Coast of Queensland, Australia with my husband and two sensational children. After years of designing and teaching hand embroidery while working in hospitality, I discovered beading. It hit me in the face and an obsession was born! I try to team this latest obsession with my favorite embroidery techniques and hopefully combine the two.
What inspired me first I'm not sure but the colours, detail and craftsmanship of lampwork beads keeps on amazing me. I hope that I do justice to these wonderful artists work by combining them with seed beads, crystals, gems, pressed glass and pearls to make them shine in unique pieces that I hope you'll love to wear!
In the future, I'd like to make lampwork beads myself but one obsession is all that I have time for at the moment!
