I teach beadweaving classes atThe New Forest Bead Shop http://www.cjbeaders.co.uk/Courses.html I live in the delightful New Forest (an ancient royal hunting ground with a variety of landscapes including heathland, forest and fields) where each season is a delight. The beautiful wild ponies and deer conserve the landscape by grazing and add interest to the Forest. Other animals allowed to graze include cattle, donkeys; and in the autumn; pigs.
My name is Jennifer Airs and I’m passionate about beads, and about beading.
It’s the mix of the fabulous colours / textures of the beads and the way
these can be transformed with a few simple tools into rich and shapely objects.
Designing beadwork was a natural progression from following, then
adapting, other people’s patterns. Over 120 of my patterns have been
published in books, in magazines and on Bead TV. Some patterns are
available as free downloads from this site.
I won the Crystals category of the British Bead Awards 2011 and judged the
awards in 2012 and 2013.
