Di Proud Didi’s Bead Den

ADi Proudlways having an interest in craftwork, assembling practical pieces with material and glue or sewing, it didn’t take much persuasion for a close friend to introduce the wonderful world of beading.

Didi’s Bead Den which opened in High Street, Nagambie in 2005, was owned and operated for five years. Di conducted beading classes for adults and children on a weekly basis where even the unsure and timid created their own masterpieces.

When diagnosed with breast cancer, life changed dramatically and it is only recently that beading has featured once again as a creative outlet.

Always fascinated by colour, nature has provided the inspiration whether it is water, soil, plants, birds or animals. Beads used are crystal, natural stones, metal or glass. Colours, texture and bead shapes form the parameters of design for individual  pieces.
