  • How Did You Learn How to Bead?

    I still remember what inspired me to really learn how to bead. After years of failed attempts at learning how to make wire jewelry and do wire wrapping, my mother gave me a pair of bead embroidered and brick stitch earrings. They were made in a Native American style with leather and tiny seed beads ...

  • 5 Reasons Why I Love Wood Beads

    A few weeks ago, as part of this spiritual journey I'm on, I went to go see a local shaman. No, really -- there's an honest-to-goodness shaman and tribal healer living up here in this wild little corner of the Adirondacks! I'd heard good things about this shaman at the end of last year, but...

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...

  • Learn How to Add Dimension to Your Bead Embroidery Projects

    When I was in fourth grade, my parents encouraged me to take as many art classes as I wanted to, so I signed up for a watercolor painting class. I found out that I didn't have much talent for painting with watercolors, but I did discover how much I loved to mix colors and lay them down on paper....
