A community-minded couple has teamed up with several local instructors to generate excitement for creating jewelry and crafts by hand.
Shane and Desiree Woodward have opened Bead Paradise, in downtown Camas.
“I am very focused on being a family friendly business and involved in the community,” Shane Woodward said.
He said Desiree fell in love with downtown Camas after she attended “Girls Night Out,” a fund raiser for cancer charities, in May.
Shane volunteers as a member of the Downtown Camas Association marketing committee.
“We want the community to succeed, and in order to do that we need to support one another,” he said. “We need to promote Camas as not only a great place to live with great schools, but also a place to grow and bring new businesses.”
In October, the Woodwards joined forces with Burgerville, to provide free children’s beading classes and a costume party.
