  • More to Explore with Jewelry-Making!

    If I were to describe it as a road, I could say that I came to beading and bead-weaving along a rambling, twisty, back country road full of mysterious forests and magnificent views of far-off mountains. Okay, so maybe I'm waxing a little poetic here, but my road to seed bead work came after a lengthy...

  • 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...

  • Color Me Chromatically Challenged

    Ever since college, I've been a fan of black. No, I never went through a Goth stage, and no, I'm not chronically mopey or depressed. I'm just a bit color-challenged, and I learned early on that black goes with everything and requires very little color coordination. I do have a few favorites...

  • 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...

  • It's All In How You String It: Kumihimo Tips For Using Leather Cord and Wire In Your Kuimhimo Projects

    Kumihimo, the ancient Japanese art of braiding, is one of my favorite examples of how age-old crafts get new life when they're resurrected and done with modern materials.

  • More Fun With Right-angle Weave: What If...?

    Right-angle weave is one of those bead-weaving stitches where I love to ask the question, "What if I...?"
