  • Try Russian Chevron Chain

    Russian chevron chain isn't quite the same as the chevron stitch you might be familiar with from the work of Designer of the Year Melanie Potter, but it's a fast and easy way to make lovely beaded bracelets and necklaces.

    Once you get hooked on beading with cabochons like I am, you want to work with cabochons of all sizes, shapes, and materials. Just looking at my haul from this year's Bead Fest Philadelphia, I noticed that I seemed to have purchased more cabochons than in previous years, most of which were made by...

  • What Happens When You Go On a Bead Stringing Binge, Plus My Latest Bead Stringing Project

    Every once in a while, I like to sit down with a spool of stringing wire and a drawer full of beads and just work on bead stringing projects. I love how quickly I can whip up a new batch of bracelets, necklaces and earrings, and there's something soothing about creating patterns or, on the flip side...

  • The One Earring Trend for Fall 2014

    I live in a college town, so I do see some of the more unusual fashion trends. But there's one trend that big fashion magazines such as Vogue and Harper's Bazaar have been chattering about that I haven't see at all so far: the single earring trend. Just like it sounds, the trend is to wear...
