About

There has been one constant through my adult life, and that has been beads.

String Me Along had its etsy birth in January of 2007. Prior to that I showcased my work solely at local craft fairs. At the time I was also stuck in a mind-numbing office and I desperately needed to solidify a creative outlet for myself.

Originally from the area in and around Toronto, Canada, I have since lived in Edinburgh, Scotland, Belfast, Northern Ireland and Moncton, New Brunswick, before recently settling near Halifax, Nova Scotia.

I find my inspiration in the world around me, and my pieces are most often inspired by the places I visit or call (temporarily) home. The constant change of scenery in my life has had a huge impact on my designs. Atlantic Canada is a gentler place than the slightly grittier Toronto and you can see this reflected in my current work.

I am at my most reflective as I twist wire and spill beads. Colour combinations excite me and seeing how a piece may come together brings me joy - most of the time. Sometimes it is awful and I set it aside to deal with another day. Not every piece can be a winner.

When I am not being "String" (my etsy nickname) I am Carol: the bookstore manager, lugger of camera, food enthusiast (eating and cooking!), spontaneous road-tripper, lover of British period dramas, and wife to my own Mr. Darcy. I also tend to over-use brackets when expressing myself (I really do!) and have a ridiculous fondness for the exclamation mark (!)!

Books and travel are my true passions. I have a constant case of wanderlust, or have my nose buried in a book, and sometimes it is both.

I hope you enjoy peeking around my shop. Thank you for taking the time to visit.

    I am a self-described magpie. Not only am I drawn to shiny things, but I have a constant need to spread my wings and fly. In the past 12 years I have lived in three Canadian provinces, and across the pond in Scotland and Northern Ireland.
