Lady in the RAW
December 2011

Marcia DeCoster: The artist dresses stylishly, knits elegant tunics and makes jewelry mostly in Right Angle Weave. We met with her in Bonn, Germany, where she was giving three days of workshops. She shared several of her treasures, which you can see here, and let us use a project for a stylish bracelet.

The Bead Ambassador

Petra Tismer: She has always loved beads. When she accompanied her husband for a few years in Turkey, she began to give courses in jewelry techniques to an international group of diplomat’s wives. Back in Germany, she made it her career.

Surprising Designs

Paula Matos: The feisty Portuguese woman decided to quit her job at a bank and do what she loves — designing jewelry and sharing that love with others. She even traveled to India to make sure everything there with the manufacture of her beads was all above board.
