Maggie’s Gold
September 2012

Maggie Meister: Her father sparked her interest in European history. Years later, the artist went to Italy, where she could experience it firsthand. The language of the colors and shapes of the ancient artifacts is interpreted stunningly in her beaded jewelry.

Caught in the net

Course: “Holes are the main cause of a net,” paraphrased from Confucius … but seriously, we explain and demonstrate the possibilities of this fascinating, simple netting technique.

Bead Art Fair 2013

Anticipation: Larger, more beautiful, more varied than ever — a preview of the 3rd BEADERS BEST Bead Art Fair 2013 in Hamburg, and in a new location.

Back to the Future

The Czech Republic: We trace the splendor of the old “Gablonz Industry” and visit the world-famous glass and bead manufacturer Preciosa Ornela, as well as the dedicated people in whom the old world craftmanship lives on, and who, as ingeniously as in the past, continue to enthrall the worldwide bead market with ever new products.
