  • Options for Finishing Your Beaded Ropes

    Ever since I made my first spiral rope, I've loved to make beaded ropes out of seed beads and my favorite off-loom bead-weaving stitches, and with the new TierraCast Maker's Collection of cord and rope ends with coordinating clasps, I was inspired to start stitching some new beaded ropes. Pretty...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Would You Believe That's Just a Wire? Simply Elegant Wire Jewelry

    If there's anyone who's inspiring me to work with more wire lately, it's my good friend and fellow jewelry artist Heather Sorrell. I met Heather a few years ago when she and I were both doing the farmer's market and craft show circuit up here in the Adirondacks, and we found ourselves...

  • Rose Gold Jewelry: A Summer 2014 Trend

    Many women seek out unique jewelry that not everyone is wearing. Rose gold is one way to stand out. Although rose gold findings are more common than they used to be, they're still much harder to find than sterling silver, brass, or copper findings. What is Rose Gold?

  • 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.

  • Why I Love Using Seed Beads for Jewelry Making

    A rainbow of seed beads at the Whimbeads bead show booth! I'll never forget the first time I sat down to make jewelry with seed beads. I'd tried all kinds of other jewelry-making techniques: mixed media, wire wrapping, polymer clay...but none of them really captured my imagination, and I never...
