Meet the team!

Suz Klumb / Store Owner/Kit Creator/Textile Designer.

As a Textile Designer, my professional journey is a vibrant tapestry woven with threads of artistic visions, fueled by an unyielding passion for innovation and creativity. Currently, I find myself immersed in a dual role that seamlessly blends my expertise in textiles and design, contributing to two distinct yet interconnected realms.

At Glass Garden Beads, I am an integral part of the service and design team, where my days are devoted to the meticulous curation of bead kits. These kits are not just assortments of beads but carefully crafted experiences for ardent beading enthusiasts. Each kit tells a unique story, combining colors, textures, and patterns to inspire creativity and ignite the imagination. It's not merely about beads; it's about crafting a narrative that unfolds with every carefully chosen elements.

Simultaneously, my creative endeavors extend to the Brigg Evans Design (POD) business, where my focus is on producing captivating textile designs. Here, I dive into the world of patterns, motifs, and textures, weaving together a visual language that speaks volumes. Whether it's translating a concept into a stunning fabric design or exploring the interplay of colors to evoke emotions, I thrive on the challenge of creating textiles that transcend the ordinary. Each design is a testament to my commitment to pushing boundaries and embracing the unconventional in the world of textile artistry using the Serti-Batik Technique.

What ties these diverse pursuits together is the concept of our charming "Tiny Shop," a haven where the fusion of artistry and craftsmanship finds its most authentic expression. It serves as a melting pot for creativity, a space where beads and textiles coexist harmoniously. The Tiny Shop is more than a physical space; it's a philosophy that encapsulates the belief that creativity knows no bounds and that true artistry lies in the ability to weave together disparate elements into a seamless whole.

Join me on this captivating creative journey where every design is a story waiting to be told. In our Tiny Shop, beads and fabrics are not just raw materials; they are brushstrokes on the canvas of self-expression. It's a space where the tactile meets the visual, and every creation is a testament to the boundless possibilities that unfold when passion and craftsmanship intertwine.

Whether you're a seasoned beading enthusiast, a textile connoisseur, or someone simply drawn to the allure of creativity, the Tiny Shop beckons. Explore the intricacies of bead crafting, immerse yourself in the world of textile design, and witness the magic that happens when these two realms collide. In our Tiny Shop, creativity knows no limits, and every visit promises a new discovery in the realm of art and design.
