Cora Sparidaans was born in Tegelen, a small city in the Netherlands. Now she lives in Venlo with her husband and two sons. One day in April, 2014, she came across a beading store (Natascha Kralen) and wondered what people do with those tiny little beads. Because she liked all different kinds of handcrafts, she got interested and bought a kit for a bracelet. That day the love for beading was born.
Not long after, she started to design her own pieces and began teaching classes for both beginners and advanced beaders. Her passion is designing new pieces and trying out color combinations. Cora also loves to share her passion with others.
In August, 2015, she got the opportunity to make her hobby into a job and works, with great pleasure, at the bead store where it all started.
