  • Why We Love 2-hole Glass Beads

    From Jennifer: When I started learning how to bead 14 years ago, 2-hole beads were something of a rarity.

  • Two-Holed Beads Simply Illustrated

    It seems like every week there's a new two-holed bead out on the market, right? Sometimes my head just spins with trying to keep them all straight, so I started keeping a little sketched chart with each shape detailed. I tack it to my bulletin board above my desk, and when there's a new 2-hole...

  • Learn How to Make an Easy Wire Bird's Nest Pendant

    A couple of months ago at Bead Fest Philadelphia, I agreed to do a wire jewelry-making demo for our friends at Parawire, and I knew that I needed to find a wire jewelry project that would be quick, easy, and used at least a couple of beads.

  • Craft Show Must-Knows

    We've all been to craft shows where there's that one vendor whose booth is clearly stealing the show--they've got non-stop business while most other vendors are doing crosswords, praying for the sun to go down, and scamming on the show's food stands. We all want to be that girl, the one...
