  • Make Dozens of Beaded Jewelry Designs With These Easy Peyote Stitch Rings

    My Roman Holiday necklace , made with a series of linked peyote rings and vintage Lucite beads. Lately, my favorite beading mantra is: quick and easy, quick and easy, beaded components, quick and easy. Yep, I've been beading on the go a lot lately, packing little portable projects around with me...

  • 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...

  • All Wired Up Over Gemstone Jewelry

    Lately, I've been doing a pretty good job at sticking to my resolution not to order (too many) new beads before I use up some of my rather substantial stash of beads and beading supplies. (Okay, more like a hoard of beads and beading supplies, but when you've been collecting for over 15 years...

  • 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...

  • 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...?" You can work right-angle weave with just about any type of bead, so the possibilities for variations are endless. The same goes for embellishing right-angle weave: one of my favorite, easy...

  • Thrift Shop Jewelry Stringing Finds

    A few weeks ago, my best friend and I headed to our local thrift shop for a quick Saturday morning outing. Whenever I'm at the thrift shop, I make sure to browse the jewelry selection, since you never know what you might find that can be recycled or upcycled into a cool new jewelry-making project...

  • Easy Wire Wrapping Techniques for My Favorite Gemstones

    After watching my yoga teacher's 9-year-old son start whipping up amazing wire-wrapped gemstones last year, I decided it was time for me to give wire wrapping a try once more.
