Issue 28

Full of fresh jewelry ideas!
March 2016

16 objects — from delicate and fluffy to “fit for a king” — invite you to brandish your needle and thread. Use netting, embroider full of volume or work in free beadweaving. This issue’s course explains the African Helix technique. Helena Tang-Lim from Singapore designed the elegant Drina Victoria collar for you. All this and much more will spur your creativity on!

Jewelry in the Luxury Class

Helena Tang-Lim: The jewelry designer’s style is magnificent, with fine textures – it reflects the rich cultural mix of the Malay Archipelago, with Indian, Chinese, British and Arabic influences. Let yourself be inspired!

African Helix

Enhance your knowledge: This time we are featuring a technique that we feel is too rarely used – especially when such a stunning structure can be so quickly achieved!

Machine-made Beauty

Beauty from a machine: At the end of the 19th century, resourceful Saxons constructed “add-ons” to convert existing knitting machines to bead crochet machines.

Inventive

Portrait of Martina Schlemminger: She would prefer to officially hold the title of “Glass Bead Maker”, but this profession was deleted from the official register of qualified craftsmen in Germany over 60 years ago – read more about the artist from Schwäbisch Hall in Germany.
