Kathleen Barry

Kathleen Barry started beading for the first time as a young schoolgirl, like many of us. Making jewellery for friends and family was a favourite hobby.

After the birth of her son she decided to turn her jewellery making and teaching into a full-time career. Kathleen is often invited as a guest teacher to prominent craft and corporate events, having taught many students in Cape Town and surrounds. She has done extensive work with local magazines presenting a large variety of workshops. Designing is still a passion and she manufactures once-off jewellery for boutiques and exclusive ranges for formal wear fashion designers. Kathleen’s bead studio is in Claremont, Cape Town where she designs, teaches, consults and advises her clients. You will be able to find her jewellery, project kits and favourite beads from around the world there.
