Paulette Baron has been beading since 1994, and began teaching bead weaving classes in the Washington, D. C. area shortly after that. In addition to teaching around her home base, Paulette has taught at the Bead&Button Show and other bead shows.
Paulette is known for creating three-dimensional, sculptural pieces of art out of beads using different sizes and shapes of beads and a wide assortment of off-loom bead-weaving stitches. Her freeform, sculptural brick-stitch work is featured in Diane Fitzgerald's book "Beading with the Brick Stitch." Two of her freeform, sculptural peyote creatures are in the 2005-2006 traveling exhibition, "The Beaded Figure." Her Pin Wheel Garden necklace won Second Place in the 2005 BeadDreams exhibit at the Bead&Button Show. This piece was also in the 2006-2007 Dairy Barn traveling exhibit.
Paulette is one of the artists featured in the Japanese publication “The Best Collection of Beadweaving Stitches by 9 American Bead Artists,” by Kumiko Mizuno Ito. She was asked to design a new piece for Margie Deeb’s book “The Beader’s Color Palette: 20 Creative Projects and 220 Inspired Combinations for Beaded and Gemstone Jewelry”. Paulette is also a co-author of “Beading Across America” available from Kalmbach Books. Although Paulette has become well-known in the beading community, she still strives to create unique and original pieces that will both satisfy her need to create and keep her students busy with new projects.
