Dominique Marando

Just Bead It Creative Team Member

“Hi, I'm Dominique, and I live in beautiful sunny Queensland, Australia.

Although I'm only fifteen years old, I have been creating things since I can remember. My Mum has always been super creative and introduced me to card-making when I was little. She loved to take me to craft markets, which inspired my love of beading, and later prompted me to start an Etsy store called "Dominique's Wares" when I was 13 to showcase my handmade jewellery designs :)

 I would describe my jewellery style as elegant and minimalist.

 In out-of-school time and when I'm not crafting, I love to bake, practice photography, read, and be inspired by nature and wildlife.

 I'm thrilled to be a part of the "Just Bead It" team, and can't wait to share my designs :)”


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!.

Hi, I am Trudi Harrison from Victoria, Australia.

I am a dedicated papercrafter; whose passion has burned brightly for scrapbooking, paper craft, creating altered décor and mixed media for over 13 years.

Over the last few years, I have had design experience with both Australian and International Scrapbook manufacturers and my work has been featured in Australian Magazines.

Class teaching and hands on experience at Papercraft and Scrapbook shows have kept me up to date with popular trends.

My projects are quite structured with lots of layering, fussy cutting, detail and dimension.

When I am not crafting, I am kept busy with a career in retail optics and family – including the extra-curricular activities that come with raising two young girls.

I am thrilled to be joining the Ruby Rock-It Design Team.
