Structures
June 2014

Featuring sensual jewelry — through their densely beaded surfaces they just beg you to touch them. Learn about the Hexagon technique, and fall in love with new and beautiful kinds of beads. And as usual, artists from around the world offer great suggestions in this issue’s 16 projects. What a “beadiful” summer it is!

Intuitive Design

Hannelore McDaniel: Trained in graphic design, she used to make collages out of vintage materials. Today she uses old and new beads as well as small pieces of artwork to produce surprisingly harmonious jewelry.

Multi-Sided

Course: Hexagon Stitch — Each bead forms one of the 6 sides — the enhancement of RAW. We’ll show you how to keep track!

Dreamy Interconnections

Portrait: Meike Nagel — The “Artist of the Torch” explains what math and lampworking have in common. Enjoy her imaginative objects.

Graveside Decorations

History: Beaded Wreaths — Customs change over time. Sometimes a window into the past opens, such as this spectacular find from old factory buildings which hadn’t been entered in many decades.
