  • Gemstones From Bead Fest

    You'll have to wait another few days to hear all about my trip to Bead Fest Philadelphia this year, but oh, my! The food, the friends, the fun! So many vendors, so many beads: crystals, glass, ceramic, polymer clay, paper, and of course, gemstones! It was my intention to find a couple of strands...

  • Try Russian Chevron Chain

    Russian chevron chain isn't quite the same as the chevron stitch you might be familiar with from the work of Designer of the Year Melanie Potter, but it's a fast and easy way to make lovely beaded bracelets and necklaces. While it more closely resembles St. Petersburgh chain in its construction...

  • Bead a Square for Cancer Research

    It's amazing how a few little beads can do a whole lot of a good. The Bead-It-Forward project began in 1985 when beader Jeanette Shannigan lost her mother to cancer. She asked beaders to donate small squares of beadwork which she then stitched into a quilt and sold at an online auction held by Bead...

    Once you get hooked on beading with cabochons like I am, you want to work with cabochons of all sizes, shapes, and materials.

  • What Happens When You Go On a Bead Stringing Binge, Plus My Latest Bead Stringing Project

    Every once in a while, I like to sit down with a spool of stringing wire and a drawer full of beads and just work on bead stringing projects. I love how quickly I can whip up a new batch of bracelets, necklaces and earrings, and there's something soothing about creating patterns or, on the flip side...

Most of you know that I love using right-angle weave for necklace and bracelet bases, because it's just so easy to embellish in so many different ways! Learning...

Lots and lots and LOTS of jewelry-making findings. Head pins, eye pins, clasps, ribbon ends, cord ends, bead caps, spacer bars, and chain. (Does chain...

  • Looking at Beaded Jewelry Design From a Fresh Perspective

    Monreale Necklace by Maggie Meister Beaded jewelry design. Friends always look at my finished pieces and ask me, "How do you do it?" My answer: "You just do it." The first time I set out to create an original beaded jewelry design, it just came to me. I didn't struggle with it...

  • The Lazy Beader: Bracelet Making Without a Clasp

    Yes, it's time for my first installment of The Lazy Beader. I mean, when you think about it, it's sort of a contradiction in terms, right off the start. I can't think of any beaders who are actually lazy -- beading takes a ton of time and skill, am I right? It's taken me almost fourteen...

I love weaving beads on a loom, and my Mirrix Loom is one of my favorite beading tools, but those warps! This beader only has so much patience when it comes to making beadwork...

  • Two-drop Variations of Favorite Bead-weaving Stitches - Peyote Stitch, Square Stitch, and Herringbone Stitch

    Want to bead faster? Try doubling the number of beads strung with each stitch. Known as “two-drop,” this technique treats two beads as one, as in “string 1 bead (now actually string 2 beads) and pass through 1 (now 2) bead(s).” Keep in mind that it can change the structural integrity...
