It is amazing to look back seven years and see how the BeadTrails Experience has taken root and grown. Starting with just a handful of beads to create a trail between wineries in her hometown of Summerland, Karen Griggs has created an experience that is designed to help businesses and communities flourish.
As with Jack's beans there's more to our beads than meets the eye. By setting out on a journey to collect the charms, you will visit places and spaces that you might not have gone to. For example, Eleanor told us of her joy at finding an art-treasure at a garden centre, " I don't even have a garden, I wouldn't ever have gone in there if it wasn't for the BeadTrails."
