Beadwork Designer of the year 2014

Three issues of Beadwork magazine have been published now featuring the 2014 designer of the year projects I am so honored to be chosen as one of the designers.  The first issue featured  Dramatic Deco Necklace.  In this necklace you will combine circular flat peyote to create squares that house fancy Swarovski Crystal Elements.  Shop https// forBeadwork Designer of the year projects and beadwork kits.

The 2nd issue featured the very unusual Galactic Glamour Necklace, which uses tubular herringbone stitch. This necklace is super fun because you make shapes and connect them together to make necklaces, earring, bracelets, or any thing else you can dream up. While we don't have actual kits made for this we will be happy to get you a set of supplies. just call the shop or email.

And the third issue has the very delicate Himalaya Bracelet. We put together four really great color combo kits togetherr for this designer of the year project featuring Glenda Paunonen. Shop the Designer of the year kits at Select Beadwork Designer of the year kits. One thing to remember is that these Designer of the year kits, do not come with separate instructions. You need to have a copy of the Beadwork magazine for the instructions.

While you are on the web site check out my brand new kit, Tirette. I thought the name was French for zipper, but then one of my customers said it really means pull tag. Oh well I ame keeping the name Tirette. This is a very fun bracelet, that looks so sleek. Made with 8.o permanent finish seed beads, and 24 kt gold plated half tills. It used cubic right angle weave. I just love the look of it, as well as its bulk. 

I have a lot of kits and designs I am working on.. As well as trying to get out the door to go to Bead and Button Show. I will be teaching about 10 classes there. It should be an excellent time. Hope to see some of you in one of my classes. Thanks for your support, and till we talk again.. Happy Beading, the Bead Goddess, Glenda
