Kris Rife

When did you start working at Beads & Brustrokes?
In 1987, I left nursing to open an antique/gift store. I started teaching classes in faux finishes and it snowballed into only supplies. 
Where are you from? How long have you lived in Charleston?
I was raised in Pennsylvania and moved to Mount Pleasant in 1977.
What is your favorite medium for creating?
I am a jack of all trades and change mediums on and off. Ideally, I'd paint on beads!
What is your favorite color? 
What is your favorite gemstone?
What is your favorite part of working at Beads & Brushstrokes?
Developing the friendships we have with our customers. Some of these relationships are three generations long! I also loved teaching kids' classes...but time and space don't always allow.
