Italian Elegance
December 2014

Draw attention to yourself with noble pendants, necklaces, rings, earrings and a “scarf necklace.” Find inspiration from 18 jewelry projects where a total of 11 techniques are used. Precise explanations and clear illustrations will make you successful! Good for beginners, the first of a two-part course will show you the basics of the Peyote stitch. In addition to news, tips and interesting fairs, learn about a historic craft: Gorl Stitchery.

Powerful Presence

Monica Vinci: The strong-willed Sardinian has studied veterinary medicine, sold luxury cars and taught karate — and now handicrafts. Since her pregnancy, she has become devoted to the art of beading. Her dazzling jewelry always makes a statement.

Meditative

Course – Peyote, Part 1: We again present the popular and perhaps most versatile technique in depth. Part 1 covers even and odd count peyote stitch as well as increases and decreases.

Lampwork

Lampwork Symposium: Each year in September, the historic town of Wertheim, with its glass museum, hosts the annual gathering of lampworkers from throughout Germany and the neighboring countries.

Gorl Stitchery

History: One of the many textile decoration techniques — also called trimmings — was the creation of decorative bands or beaded lace trims, similar forms of which are experiencing a Renaissance today.
