Touch of the Fifties
September 2013

Sixteen jewelry projects from easy-to-make to sophisticated — some of them in typical colors of the 50’s — for example, the “Rock ‘n’ Roll” charm necklace from Diane Hyde. You will find stimulating ideas, tips on how to nicely hide magnet clasps, two designer portraits, the winner pieces of the IBA contest and much more.

Modern Retro

Diane Hyde: She is a graphic designer and illustrator and works works with old, trimmed metal chains, and — aside from beads — uses vintage elements, photographs, old porcelain doll parts and all manner of unusual artifacts to make enchanting “it” jewelry with a vintage flair.

16 Projects

There is something for everyone: the information about degree of difficulty, time involved and costs will help you find what’s right for you.

IBA 2103: The Winners

A lot of beaders participated; not everyone could win. Sometimes only a single star in the rating made the difference. Here you can see the winners of IBA 2013, which had the theme: “Mix It” — something old with something new!

Inner Secrets

Course: Small magnetic clasps are convenient, but they don’t necessarily beautify a piece of jewelry. In this course we will show you how to attractively conceal them.

Brilliant Planning

Sabine Reinhardt has her very own beading techniques and a large following.
