Bead Unique Winter Issue 2009

10:54 AM Posted by Site Editor

This issue is very much about bringing creative beading to every part of your holiday season. Play with wire! Use flexible beading wire to weave a necklace, designed by Fran Morris Mandel, that's perfect for your next holiday party. Get creative with metal clay! Learn how to use a mold to design a decorative toggle clasp by Kelly Russell or let Tamara Honaman show you how to use a simple stamp to create your own metal clay charms. Decorate your home! Lucite flowers from The Hole Bead Shoppe adorn a glass ornament, while soldered ornaments by Lisa Bluhm add some heart to your holiday tree.

    I was thinking of looking up some of them newspaper websites, but am glad I came here instead. Although glad is not quite the right word… let me just say I needed this after the incessant chatter in the media, and am grateful to you for articulating something many of us are feeling - even from distant shores.
