  • An Easy Beaded Square Stitch Magnet for a Last-Minute Gift

    One of my beadweaving friends recently had a baby. I wanted to make her a small gift that would showcase her love of beads and would be fairly quick to make. Seed beads and babies don't mix well, so I knew anything I made had to be sturdy and kept in a place that would be away from little grabby...

  • Real Men Wear Beads - How to Bead For a Man

    In all my years of doing bead-weaving, I've only ever attempted one piece of jewelry meant for a man. For me, anyway, figuring out how to bead for a man is really, really difficult!

    You know, making wire jewelry isn't nearly as difficult as I thought it was. And much to my husband's dismay, I'm adding all kinds of new jewelry-making supplies to my stash -- wire, hammers, bench blocks, even a micro torch out in the garage with my glass torch! What I'm really enjoying...
