  • All Wired Up Over Gemstone Jewelry

    Lately, I've been doing a pretty good job at sticking to my resolution not to order (too many) new beads before I use up some of my rather substantial stash of beads and beading supplies. (Okay, more like a hoard of beads and beading supplies, but when you've been collecting for over 15 years...

  • Is That a UFO? Not Anymore!

    I have to admit, when it comes to my beading UFOs (UnFinished Objects), I'm pretty bad. I have drawers that are full of bags that contain bits and pieces of unfinished beading projects, and I always feel guilty when I come across them while looking for beading supplies for new projects. But I know...

  • Go On a Bracelet-Making Binge!

    Oh my goodness, where do I start? I was feeling in a bit of a beading funk the other day, so I decided to clean off my desk. (That shows you just how desperate I was!) I came across a bag with some new metal components from my friends at TierraCast in it -- and these were no ordinary components. They...

  • Choosing a Toggle: The Beginning of the End

    In 1998, I hit two milestones. I used seed beads to trap my first cabochon (pictured above), and I had my first exposure to a toggle clasp. These are big events in my personal bead history. Here's the real point of this story: I had no idea how a toggle clasp worked. Seriously. It looked clean and...
