Meet Paula - The face behind On a String AU
Beading began as a passion for me in 2004….I started by watching a friend make a pair of earrings, threaded into wire and looped together….and I was literally hooked. My husband and three sons have seen my love affair with beads blossom and grow, and they understand the sanity I get from being creative with tiny, shiny beads.
I’m a self taught beader, learning from Bead and Button and BeadWork magazines, and have evolved my beading knowledge, through continuous workshops and beading opportunities throughout the world. I’m involved in various bead groups through Australia, and my journey continues to enthrall and captivate my creativity and imagination with beads.
My home studio is my happy space – there’s nothing more that I enjoy more – pottering about, creating my own designs or learning from others I admire all over the world. It’s where you can usually find me after work, relaxing, beading and watching rubbish on my iPad.
Thanks again for reading this – all items are lovingly hand made by me – either in my home studio in Melbourne or relaxing at the river in Corowa.
