Issue 16

Scandinavia
March 2013

Colorful and noble – from scandinavian flair to romantic roses up to energetic colors and “the unusual” — this issue of Perlen Poesie leaves nothing to be desired. You will find 17 jewelry projects by artists from Scandinavia, Germany, USA, Italy and Switzerland. Also, see all the jewelry courses from the 3rd BEADERS BEST Bead Art fair in Hamburg, and the instructions to a little game for the fair. Enjoy many creative hours with this issue!

Take Your Places!

Sabine Lippert: She bravely turned her life around — from a full-time doctor to a full-time bead artist. Her analytical and investigative nature helps her to put each type of bead in its proper place. She has even developed a new bead.

Courses

The 3rd BEADERS BEST Bead Art Fair: A wealth of courses, famous artists, along with merchant stands at the fair make it a true beader’s paradise. But only once a year. Plan on being there!

Soft as Metal

Course: You form it as you would polymer clay or regular clay — but it’s metal! You can easily make your own clasps.

The Truth About Pearls

In the Know: Artists use all kinds of components in jewelry design — including the pearls that nature gives us. There are, however, still some unrealistic beliefs surrounding them. We’ll clue you in.

A Jazzy Beaded Beetle

The Vochol: You don’t often see it. Check out the beaded Beetle of the Huichol indians.

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.
