  • 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.

  • 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...
