Meredith Roddy - Beadalon Design Team Member

I started building my bead stash when I was just a little girl, and I found a way to turn my passion into my career. I rediscovered beading in early 2000, and continue to add sparkly, shiny beads to my collection. Recently, I’ve also discovered a love of paper crafts and Art Journaling. By day, I am the Assistant New Product Manager at Beadalon and Artistic Wire after working as a Sales Executive there for 7 years. At Beadalon, I’ve had the opportunity to travel around the country visiting shops and local shows. Now, I get to look for new trends in the industry and bring them into the Beadalon product mix. Dream job? Shyeah!

After hours, I get to play and practice and discover new ways to use my fantastic stash of beading supplies. I’ve taught all kinds of beading, demonstrated at the Beadalon booth at CHA, Bead & Button, in Tucson and at the BeadFest shows. In 2013, I got certified as a Ranger Instructor at Ranger U. I’m a pretty lucky, crafty gal having a lot of fun with it all!
