A story to be told

Beads of Paradise began after moving from the city to the country.

What to do living in western NSW? Surrounded by vast open space and never ending plains with lively wildlife. Adjusting from life in the fast lane to married life on a mixed cropping sheep farm. The need for creativity had to be in the mix. Inspirations came from all directions. It was always like another day in paradise, well, not always!

Beads of Paradise became my haven where I began creating costume jewellery. Focusing on the bridal world creating custom made wedding accessories for brides.

However, the world changed when Covid took control. Whilst weddings weren’t happening ... there have been many babies!

Times have changed.
