Welcome To Rainbow Collection

RAINBOW COLLECTION does all things beady. 
 Hello, my name is Gill Goldfinch and I love to bead.  Whether it is to make a lovely piece of jewellery, added to a sewing project or simply collecting beads like a magpie, I am a little bit obsessed with beads!
I have been beading for more than 14 years now and as soon as I went to a workshop in Canterbury, I was hooked and I have now been teaching beading in Whitstable for more than 12 years.
I like to create patterns from techniques, but like to keep it quite simple.  There are many designers out there who I admire and love working from their patterns and have been lucky enough to get permission to do workshops with their design - more of this later.
