  • Get Creative With These Beaded Brooch Projects

    Beaded brooches are probably the very last type of beaded jewelry that I think of designing when I sit down to make a new piece, right there under "bolo ties" and "cuff links". But when I came across this blog from Jean Campbell with 5 ways to wear a beaded brooch , I started thinking...

  • Head to the Hardware Store for Your Next Mixed Media Jewelry Project

    Remember that blog I posted last week about the Bead For a Man competition ? Well, I was totally smitten with the bracelet by Aurelio Castano, and, judging from your comments, so were a lot of you! It made me think of the fun Grommets Galore bracelet project by Dulcey Heller that I made a few years ago...

  • 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! Even though a lot of my beadwork leans towards gender-neutral colors and styles, I still have a hard time picturing...

  • My Favorite Seed Bead Patterns from Diane Fitzgerald

    I can still remember the day I bought my first beading book by Diane Fitzgerald. It had been a tough day at work, and I knew that I needed some bead therapy that night. On the way home, I made a humongous detour to my favorite local bead shop, where I had seen a copy of Beading With Brick Stitch . For...

    Using a grid drawn on my bead embroidery medium for symmetrical placement of my cabochons I fell in love with bezeling cabochons using off-loom bead-weaving techniques when I first started learning how to bead. But it took me a little longer to warm up to the beading techniques used for including cabochons...
