Vanessa has been making beads since 2002. She started in a little family business making beads for mostly Haute Couture, designers and museums. That was for her a great experience cause she got a good skill making same size beads and patterns over and over. She learned some techniques which are getting lost these days.
Then she started her own business making her own unique pieces and collections in 2007. The year after, she met Beau Anderson, who was visiting Paris. Beau taught her more techniques that lifted her skill higher. Since then, they live, work and teach classes together in schools and private studios.
In 2015, Vanessa won the prestigious title “One of the best worker of France” (Meilleur Ouvrier de France, MOF) that was opened for the first time ever to the Art & Glass bead category.
