Carolyn Cave

carolyn-cave-image-300wA self-taught bead artist living in Alberta, Canada, Carolyn enjoys the endless creativity derived from stringing and stitching little, round, shiny things with holes in them. This is both a frustrating and exhilarating way to fill in the spare moments of her very full days as a wife, mother of three young ladies, and musician. Creativity has always played a large role in her life, from sewing clothes for Barbie at a young age, to experimenting with a wide variety of arts and crafts; from earning a Degree in Music and playing several instruments, to making jewelry. Her creations are inspired by a wide variety of things: the colors and shapes of the natural world, works of vintage and antique beaded art, the encouraging comments of her family, and the many hours spent composing with needle, beads and thread.

Her work has been published in Bead and Button and Beadwork magazines, and she has been a winner in multiple categories of BeadStar every year since 2011. Carolyn is also the author of the book “Beautiful Designs with SuperDuos and Twin Beads”, published by Kalmbach, and a second book is in the works now. You can see some of Carolyn’s work on her Facebook page, Lady Beadle Designs.

Carolyn has also taught at the 2016 Bead and Button Show and is teaching at the 2017 Bead and Button Show.
