Welcome to The Craftroom where I turn beads and wire into fascinating and unique beaded bugs. It all started one day when I was playing around with some wire and a few beads, after a short time I had made a spider. After selling them at local markets I decided to make something that was more unique to our beautiful country and that's when my NZ Wetas were born. When I first started making them I used glass beads but after a while I wasnt able to get the beads I needed so I had two choices. The first being, not to make them anymore and the second, to make my own beads. As the Wetas are even more popular than the spiders I felt the first choice was not an option. So after playing around with some polmer clay I was able to make the beads I needed for the Wetas. Hope you enjoy.
