Melody Gillespie

Just Bead It Creative Team Member

Hi I’m Melody and I am so happy to be part of the creative team for Just Bead It!

I have always made things & was lucky to grow up surrounded by some really creative people.  Over the years I have played around within many different mediums but I have a really strong love of beadwork. 

My collection of beads is largeish & wherever I go I seem to garner more. I tend to use a combo of new and vintage beads that I have gathered throughout my travels. Markets, Travel and Photography are my other favourites and happily these things seem to go well together.

Now blissfully at home with our toddler I have pretty much retired from almost 20 years of doing markets and festivals and have taken my shop online.

I look forward to sharing some of my creations and hope to inspire you with some of these amazing beads!


Chez Mathieson

Just Bead It Creative Team Member

Hi my name is Chez.  I live in the Shoal Haven on the beautiful South Coast of New South Wales, Australia. I am married to a wonderful man, have grown children, a grandbaby, a furbaby and a few chooks. I have been crafting for most of my life.  Yarn and fabric were my first crafts.

In 2005 I attended a Bead Show in Sydney that sparked my interest in beading as more than a hobby. I have been teaching bead work for over 10 years. It has been a pleasure to meet and bead with the students of all abilities. I have made the most amazing friends from Beading.  They are the loveliest people from all over the world. I enjoy creating unique patterns in many beading styles. Seed beads took over as the medium that I enjoyed the most, along with lampworking.  I entered the Royal Easter Show in Sydney in 2015 winning the Bead Embroidery Open Class. I could talk beads all day, everyday LOL!

I would describe my creative style as eclectic and unique.

I am thrilled to bits to be a Design Team Member for Just Bead It.

Christine Santos

Ruby Rock-It Creative Team Member

Hi there, my name is Christine Santos & I live in Auckland, New Zealand, the beautiful city of sails.   I’m blessed to have 2 bubbly and gorgeous little girls, & they’re my major subject & inspirations when I create. I casually started scrapbooking in 2010 since my first daughter was born.  My mom bought me a baby themed paper stack & some stickers, I can clearly rem''ember asking myself...what am I going to do with all this stuff?!?  Then I got introduced to the wonderful world of papercrafting, thanks to my sister in law! I never looked back since, and have started to improve & really got into my craft by late 2013.  By then I’ve developed a strong interest in card making & creating altered items as well. 

My crafting style is lots of layers with playful touches, & I love colors! I do keep an open mind all the time & don't overly restrict myself to doing the same thing every time.  I can't wait to share some Ruby Rock It creations with all of you!.

My name is Alicia Barry from Brisbane, Australia. I am a married Mum of three and when I am not with the kids or scrapping I work as a primary school teacher. I haver been scrapping for more than ten years and have been very fortunate to have designed and taught  for a range of wholesalers, retailers, manufacturers and magazines in the scrapbooking industry. I have had many projects published both in Australia and overseas, and am proud to have had my work on display for a number of different companies at multiple CHA shows. My style does tend to change a bit, especially depending on the products I am working with, but my projects are always dimensional, and nearly always floral. I love to work with soft colours and I love to fussy cut I especially love to create unusual beyond the page items. I am thrilled to be part of the Ruby Rock-It/ Bella! Fundamentals team!

I would definitely consider myself a craft-a-holic and paper artist.  I love to draw, paint, sew and make jewelry and have ever since i can remember. I majored in graphic design and costumes growing up and in college and use it for creating projects for my family, friends and anything else i can make for them.  I have been published both online and in print publications and in my spare time i teach classes to inspire others in this fun crafty field of cards, scrapbook pages and off the page projects.

I am married to my best friend and have 2 kids, 2 dogs and 3 cats. I am a So Cal native and when i have any spare time I love to cook, hike in the great outdoors, hang out at the beach, travel to amazing places, perfect my photography skills and work in my garden.

I am over the moon excited to be on the Ruby Rocket Team with all the talented girls this year and hope that i can inspire you to make amazing things with all the gorgeous products that they carry.
