Marcella started beading as a youth, but really fell in love with it when she started working at Beauty in the Bead Shop. One of her favorite styles is the wrapped bead bracelet and is excited to teach this class to our Bead Buddies. Born in Alaska and lived in several places including Alabama, she has now called Whatcom County her home for seven years.
Megan has been a weaver all her life. In the last ten years she became entranced with bead and wire weaving and has become a prolific beader. She is constantly creating new and exciting things and pushing the boundaries of her knowledge. She finds that learning is one of the greatest things in life and thinks of herself as a student even when she is teaching.
Criss is a self taught jewelry maker. Although she loves to make earrings the most, she dabbles in a bit of everything. She has been crafting for the last 17 years but has been making jewelry for over six years. She enjoys it so much she loves working at the bead shop and declares “she works for beads”. She grew up in Whatcom County and has an eye for art. Come and learn some of the basics and see what you can do!
Connie Ridley: After living way too many years in Texas, Connie is now back home in the Pacific NW and loving it. It was no big surprise that she ended up in Bellingham at the shop of her life time friend, Linda, owner of the shop. Although she had never beaded before, she has enjoyed dabbling in various forms since she began working here. She says, come on in, and let’s figure this out together. She would love to learn from you.
