The suburb/town you live in now: Rasmussen - Townsville.
What is it that you make and what skills do you use?: I make jewellery using a range of products. I make earrings, bracelets, necklaces, pendants, rings using beads, resin, and paper. I also incorporate metal and wooden beads into my work. I just allow my creativity and imagination to flow when creating pieces.
What inspired you to start your business?: Initially I started selling items just to be able to keep my hobby going but now I'm trying to build my business so that I can create beautiful things full time.
How long have you been creating?: I've been creating all my life in various forms. I've been beading for about 5 - 6 years.
Is it a full time/part time hobby or business?: Beadiful Things is my small business
Where do you sell your creations?: I have items listed on Etsy, and local markets in Townsville. I'm an excited first timer with The Handmade Expo FNQ and NQ in December 2016.
What makes you so special or different?: I'm a perfectionist, so hopefully that comes across in my work. I have a background in psychology so I try to make a range of pieces to cater for different tastes.
What is the most rewarding part of what you do?: The unexpected. Sometimes my best pieces come from when I'm just tinkering around trying out ideas.
What is your favourite product to make?: Earrings - a girl can never have too many earrings.
Do you teach classes or workshops?: Not at the moment.
