Issue 15

A Cheerful Bead Magazine!
December 2012

Get inspired by the fresh geometric designs of the Londo-based artist Jean Power and bead the necklace “Rio” in Brazilian colors. Let the bold shades of Mexico move you — a highlight is the collier “Frida” by artist Anja Schlotman (Part 2). Other classy, festive works await you, such as the necklace “Greta Garbo” and the golden collier “Anam”. By the way: we also have something for men.

Less is more

Jean Power: Her name says it all. For about ten years she has been a passionate beader with a taste for geometric shapes. Lots of angles and edges, often in bold colors: her works radiate their own special dynamics.

The New Easy

Susan D. Wilson: First she took courses in Tiffany and lampwork to relax, then goldsmith courses. Today, Susan Diana Wilson teaches how to work with metal clay.

Chain Reaction

Course: You can learn how to work with chain maille rings and how to do link them in great patterns!

Retrospect

2nd BEADERS BEST Bead Art Fair: With a tear in our eyes we look back at three too-short days: awesome atmosphere, great people, a lot to learn and to see and a superb range of offerings.

Hot Job

In the Know: We visited two workshops in the Czech Republic in which experts finish beads in the old style.

Projects

Something for everyone is guaranteed; the information about degree of difficulty, time involved and costs help you to find what’s right for you.
