I have featured many beadwork designers who come from different backgrounds.  Christine Heidema of Honolulu, Hawaii, is the first scuba diving instructor, though!  As you can see from her store, Christmas Creation, she designs spectacular beaded Christmas ornaments as well as other jewelry patterns. 

These range from about 4 inches to 7 inches tall!  They would be magnificent on Christmas trees. Beading enthusiasts will enjoy the challenge. 

Christine says she has also been a shark feeder and personal trainer! She said, "This is the 9th country I have lived and worked in in the past nine years. It's a GREAT job, but rather stressful believe it or not, so it's nice to come home and bead in my down time."  We get it - beading is one of the most relaxing crafts out there!
