After 15 years in the workforce as a PA/Marketing Co-ordinator, Christine decided to quit and become a full time beadaholic.
Christine has been beading for the past 14 years, starting with wirework and peyote stitch classes back in 2000. With a background in machine embroidery and many other crafty activities, she has taken to beading with great enthusiasm. Some years ago, Christine undertook a Certificate of Design for Embroidery through the Embroiderers Guild, Victoria, Australia, which started her on the road to designing her own projects.
After frequent requests to provide instructions for her designs, Christine has now written up several of her favourites. She has also constructed a website to help market instructions and kits. Christine’s involvement with the Bead Society of Victoria has also lead to tutoring and she hopes that this new and exciting career will continue into the future.
