Issue 30

Motivating, creative and eclectic!
September 2016

The 17 jewelry projects by designers from 9 countries will make for a colorful autumn. In addition, learn the herringbone technique in part 1 of our course. Find history, new types of beads and a preview of the upcoming 2017 BEADERS BEST Fair. Look forward to inspiration for bracelets, necklaces, rings and earrings in herringbone, peyote, brick, RAW, CRAW and netting techniques. The special glamour piece among them is “Semiramide” in netting, designed by the artist Claudia Cattaneo.

Claudia Cattaneo 

The spirited, motorcycle-riding artist tirelessly develops new filigree designs – incorporating micro-macramé and tatting – simply charming!

Herringbone Part 1

You will learn a stitch that is simple and quick. Woven flat – you get a beautifully soft, textile-like structure.

All in Black

FYI: What is jet, what is black glass aka French jet or jet glass, what are nailheads? Read about “schwarze Bijuterie” (black fashion jewelry), which over 100 years ago went from being jewelry worn for mourning to a fashion statement.
