My name is Bianca van der Molen, 33 years old and a lover of beads.
Around 10 years ago I caught the virus of beading... It began with stringing large beads and about 6 years ago I decided to focus solely on Beadweaving.
At the end of 2012 I made my first tutorial: Star of Kallista and since then I taught myself to improve my skills in making tutorials, became a published beader in several international beading magazines (see publications), opened up my own Etsy store and became a member of the Beadsmith Inspiration Squad in december 2015.
In january 2018 I've been asked to become an ambassador for the International Beading Week UK.
