About

Hidden in a charming courtyard we fell upon a narrow bead shop quite by accident. Trays of glass beads in rainbow colours tempted my children and I and in a very short time we left the shop with a heavy bag and an empty purse. Once home we sat in the garden beneath a tree and spent a wonderful afternoon stringing our purchases.

In that hidden bead shop Christmas ornaments hung from the ceiling, I hadn't seen anything quite like it before and once home couldn't get them out of my mind, so I began to research and discovered the art of Bead Weaving. I joined the Bead Workers Guild and they sent me a spiral rope kit with Nymo, many knots and tangles later I had mastered my first bead weaving stitch!

In early 2005 I founded The Bead Trail and turned a hobby into a career. Although our retail shop no longer exists I have continued to sell on-line and now have time to work on my pattern ideas and create kits with all the components needed.

I am inspired by colour and texture in the world around me, have a passion for all things creative and dip in and out of textiles, art, embroidery and crochet and have an unhealthy habit of collecting books and supplies for all of the above!

I hope you have enjoyed reading my short story and enjoy my patterns more so.

Rebecca
