I teach beadweaving classes atThe New Forest Bead Shop 

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.

About me: 


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.
