My name is Bianca van der Molen. About ten years ago I came in contact with beads, during a small workshop at my job. Since then I was completely hooked on the beads!
Over the years I thaught myself to bead, from "just" stringing (with a little bit of wirewrapping) beads, bead embroidery and then to beadweaving! I just love it that you can make the most intricate but yet simple jewerly by just weaving the beads with different techniques.
At the end of 2012 I began writing my first tutorial: Star of Kallista. At that same date I opened up my etsy store (see my tutorial pages). Since then I published several more in my etsy store and in two (international) bead magazines!
