Kerrie Slade gives us a glimpse into her little beaded fairytales and indulges us with the lush, summery neckwear “Garden Party”. The Daisy Chain course is good for beginners. Intriguing projects await you such as Francis Drake, a small dragon for your wrist, and the necklaces Golden Harvest and Fireworks. You’ll also enjoy an assortment of easy-to-assemble pieces from earrings to pendants. And as usual, a little bit of history: How were glass pearls made? Finally, enjoy the nominated pieces for the 2015 International Bead Award: “On a Journey of Discovery”.
Flower Power with Attention to Detail
Kerrie Slade: The British artist is a full-time beader who converts her love of nature and her partiality for legends and fairy tales into beadwork. She also sees it as a challenge to use unusual shapes and colors of beads. Even thorny beads (Spikes) are transformed into delicate flowers. Enjoy her imaginative works!
Daisy Chain course: We show you 10 variations of this technique, ranging from sweet designs suitable for beginners and children to multi-row versions, the use of which lends a softness and flexibility to jewelry pieces.
