Hi, my name is Linda and I was born and raised in Saint John! I guess you can say that crafting is in my blood. When I retired, my beading started as a hobby and has now turned into “Bead Creations”. Sadly, I can no longer pass a bead store without going in and seeing what’s new. My beadwork is intricate and has evolved over time but I love being able to put together inexpensive pieces that anyone can wear and more elaborate pieces that are perfect for special occasions. And when my eyes are too tired to look at one more small bead, I work on my little gnomes. I just love making the perfect outfits and customizing them! I’ve done nurse gnomes, rocker gnomes and even a biker gnome. I have even been known to find the perfect little guitars or shoes on my travels. My favorite part about the Kingston Farmers Market is all the amazing people I meet, the fun custom projects and of course the other vendors that I have come to know and love!
