Brimming with Ideas
December 2015

From single elements to an entire set, beads with a single hole to those with more, from the classical to the unconventional — all of it in the current, soft colors — leaving nothing to be desired! The popular jewelry designer Lisa Kan charms us with a two-sided wearable collar. In addition find book recommendations, tips and tricks, news and history.

On the move 

Lisa Kan: As a child, she was surrounded by textile colors and patterns, learned a technical profession, then discovered lampwork, which led to beading, enameling and wirework. She is currently intensively researching the dyeing and printing of fabrics with the help of plants.
