Jacqui of BettyRoseTutorials on Etsy
Jacqui is a beading artist and instructor from the UK, and as she shares with us not the only artist in her family..."Betty-Rose Tutorials is named for my family. My Grandmother (Rose) and my mother (Betty) were both avid crafters and this passion has been passed down to me and on to my children.
Like my for-bearers, my art side came out as a child, my professional experience in crafting began with my business Daisy-Doo (www.daisy-doo.co.uk) where I supply other crafters with crystals, beads and other materials as well as displaying some of my own handmade work.
Being surrounded with so many beautiful supplies, my creative juices went into overdrive and I started experimenting with different jewellery making techniques such as Kumihimo.
I quickly reached the limit of the designs already on offer so I began to create my own.
I found a lot of the tutorials available difficult to follow so saw a gap in the market for clear, well presented patterns.
Sixteen years of being a Maths teacher gave me the analytical and teaching skills to create beading patterns suitable for all learning styles - combining high resolution photography, step by step written instructions, and accurate diagrams.
Each tutorial takes upwards of 20 hours to produce. As a perfectionist I will remake each piece numerous times to ensure the instructions are consistent and easy to understand.
I know directly that beading can be an expensive past time and I pride myself on providing quality tutorials at competitive, accessible prices."
Thank you again Jacqui! You have done a magnificent job on your tutorials and the beading world appreciates the effort and perfectionism you bring to each one!
