Gecko Beads

Initially, beading for Marja Veldhoen was just a hobby. The then-graphic designer started sliding down the slippery crafting slope more than a decade ago after discovering Cindy Jenkins' book How to Make Glass Beads. Soon, she was hooked. Marja shares her zeal for unusual looking beads and jewellery that springs from nature's influence with students through courses teaching the art of inventing handmade wearables from semi-precious stones, pearls, and glass. Her Bead blog keeps crafters abreast of events and promotions, which can include trunk shows, tax-free offers, and workshops on installing chic beaded garage doors.
