Keryn of Myriadbeads
As the designer and creator of bead-woven jewellery, and more recently, polymer clay beads, it gives me a great deal of joy and fulfilment to create each and every piece.
Forever drawn to creative endeavour, from teenage knitting, to sewing, embroidery, calligraphy and more, I have turned my attention to jewellery design in more recent years. My first hands-on beading encounter was 4 years ago, at a one day workshop to make an amulet purse – a spur of the moment decision - and I have been captivated by beads ever since.
Always on the lookout for focal beads around which to construct my designs, I came upon the stunning and unique works of art that those in polymer clay (PC) are achieving. Thus, I started to experiment with PC and have only just begun to explore the myriad possibilities of this fascinating and exciting medium – the colours, shapes, styles and effects that can be achieved are spectacular. Even though I work full time as a speech pathologist I can always find some moment in the day to settle to the totally absorbing pursuit of the next creation.
