Issue 17

Asian Touch
June 2013

Wonderful pendants, interchangeable rings with large crystals, trendy collar necklace, Asian flair by renowned artists, learn how to bead clasps, the nominations of the IBA 2013 — all this and much more in this issue.

Subtle Sophistication

Sonoko Nozue: She studied Japanese literature. Her jewelry is as subtle and esthetic as she herself is. Twenty years ago the sight of a frame-woven beaded bag awakened her love of bead art — and the inspiration from her artistically active mother who tailored kimonos and made Japanese dolls. Let yourself be enchanted by the works of the Japanese bead artist.

Beaded Clasps

Course: You want to create just the right matching clasp for your piece of jewelry, yourself? Which creative methods there are and what technical details you have to pay attention to — find out about them in our course.

Down to the Wire

Yael Falk: Remember knitting that tube with the knitting spool, which at the same time served for coiling the tube around? A similar principle has been developed by Yael (Yoola) Falk for crocheting or knitting wire — the method lies somewhere in between — to make jewelry and other objects that have a nice, uniform loop — something not otherwise achievable with wire.

Projects

Great pendants, rings made with really big crystals, necklace with golden leaves, neat bracelets and much more from artists such as Guzel Bakeeva, Sonoko Nozue, Kathy King, Yumiko Watanabe, Helena Tang-Lim, Keiko Wada, Erika Pfister, Met Innmon, Monika Seip, and Sabine Reinhardt.
