Pauline Stevens has been interested in craft since early childhood. Starting with sewing, knitting and crocheting, she then progressed to paper tole, ceramics, stamping, beading and bead making.
In the eary 1990’s a TAFE course in Brisbane started her on the path of beading. She shared the knowledge of this new found passion with a group of friends, teaching many classes on her back deck.
The lampworking journey started when she wondered “how do they get those flowers inside a glass bead?”. Now she knows. After many hours of tuition by Qld and interstate lampwork artists, she has left the flowers behind and enjoys making turtles, foxes, birds, owls, mushrooms and octopi.
Having recently retired she is now spending time sharing her skills at Scattered Arts and Sunshine Beaders.
