Meet Candy Craig!

I discovered the joy of beading in 2006, after retiring from a 35-year teaching career. I was immediately hooked and began teaching basic beading classes in 2007. I started my own design company, Raindancer Studio, in 2009 and began taking my designs and kits on the road with an east coast bead show. Four years later I opened an online shop on Etsy. Now in 2018 I have semi-retired again and am having fun designing, beading with friends, and taking classes from other designers – what can I say, I’m a born educator. One thing I always enjoyed about my career in secondary education was the collegial feeling among teachers and staff. This special feeling also exists within the beading community. Beaders not only love what they do, but are so open to sharing their talents and ideas, helping us all develop our own talents and beading styles. Could anything be any better than surrounding yourself with creative, supportive people? I think not. I've retired from the bead show circuit in 2018 and am delighted to have Buttercup Beads continue my love of beading by hosting my projects for me with classes, tutorials, and kits of many of my most beloved bead projects. You can contact me and see more of my designs through my Etsy store, Raindancer Studio. Enjoy!
