Creative Beading # 4
Best of Bead&Button
August 2009
The Bead Book
1st Book Review
April 2009

The good folks at Kalmbach have included the Byzantine Balanced Bracelet article, which first appeared in the October 2011 Bead&Button magazine, into their new 256-page, hardbound book entitled: Creative Beading Vol. 8: The best projects from a year of Bead&Button magazine. This book is currently available at book stores nationwide or online at Kalmbach's website. Thank you Editor Erica Swanson.

Enjoy beauty and value in one sturdy volume! Creative Beading Vol. 8 showcases 70+ projects from the pages of Bead&Button magazine from October 2011 through August 2012. This annual keepsake series is a treasured by beaders for its wealth of projects, vast array of styles, clearly presented techniques, and range of skill levels - truly something for everyone!

Just so there is no confusion, this Byzantine chain patter is also known as the Serrated Byzantine chain, as featured within my 3rd book. Serrated Byzantine kits are avaliable from my jump ring supplier Spider at www.spiderchain.com.


I am honored to to have the Repetitive Eight Bracelet jewelry project featured in the Aug-Sept issue of Step-by-Step Wire Jewelry magazine, currently available at news stands nationwide or online at Interweave's website. Thank you Editor Denise Peck.

The Repetitive Eight Bracelet (left, middle) is the final jewelry design in the upcoming 5th book that weaves sixteen soldered Figure Eight formations into a bracelet length and is completed with a unique double-barrel magnetic clasping system.

For more information on creating the soldered Figure Eight formations, and then embellishing them with gemstone beads into the Flower Eight Bracelet, you can purchase a 5-page downloadable PDF file for $5 through my website.

The Serrated Byzantine Bracelet is illustrated in the October 2011
issue of Bead & Button magazine.

The April issue of B&B has a very nice review of my 3rd book title.

The Forged Arch Bracelet project from my upcoming 4th book is in the Feb-March 2011 issue of Step-by-Step Wire Jewelry magazine.

Sara Richardson, associate editor at Step-by-Step Wire Jewelry magazine wrote this wonderful review of my recently released 3rd book.

I am very proud to have made the cover of Wirework 2010 magazine, on sale at your newsstand through August. This extraordinary Kalmbach production, lists the who's who of contemporary wire jewelry artists. My project is a simple bronze Double chain (2+2+2) with faux amber beads (made by Sherri Haab) set between; seen second from left on the cover between Rachel Nelson-Smith's project at left and Rebeca Mojica's project at right.

Hazel Wheaton, editor of Art Jewelry magazine wrote a very kind review of my new Mandrel-tip Pliers.

The good folks at Kalmbach have included my Beaded Twin Bracelet article, which first appeared in the December 2007 Bead&Button magazine, into their new 256-page, hardbound book entitled: Creative Beading Vol. 4: The best projects from a year of Bead&Button magazine.

This book is a 'must have' for any creative individual; just chalked full of amazing projects. Although most of the book is dedicated to seed-beading, there is an impressive section on wireworking, where you can find my article on pages 212 - 213.

The Bead Book is a South African publication, that printed a book review, Who's Hot Q&A with me, and utilized my Byzantine chain tutorial for a beaded chain project in their April 2009 (#17) issue.

Here's a PDF file of the Q&A

My Infinity chain pattern was selected as the July 'free project' at Art Jewelry Magazine's website. Here is the link to the Art Jewelry's Free Projects and here is a link to the 2.18MB Infinity Chain PDF file.

The amazing Beadissimo bead shop that graced the Mission District of San Francisco has sadly closed its doors.

I have had several opportunities to teach at the fab Beadissimo - any excuse to visit San Francisco. Before I came back to teach in the winter of 08, I received a request from Kate Richburg to do a Q&A to post on their site.

Here is a link to that Question & Answer PDF file.

Addy Kidd, assistant editor of Bead & Button Magazine, wrote this how-to article from my tutorial on the Beaded Twin Chain Bracelet.

I was invited to Cleveland in June to participate in a PBS shooting for the seventh season of Beads, Baubles, and Jewels. Here I am with the host, Katina Forta, after shooting a tutorial on the Zigzag Byzantine and Starfish Pendant.

Jill Erickson, Associate Editor at Art Jewelry Magazine wrote this generous book review for the March 2007 periodical. My deepest gratitude goes out to Jill Erickson, Katie Streeter and the entire staff at Kalmbach Publications.

Bonnie Bing, fashion editor of the Wichita Eagle, was kind enough to give me a phone interview for this article which was featured in the January 22 edition of the Wichita Eagle Newspaper.

This image of my Flatt bracelet was selected for inclusion in Creative Silver Chains by Chantal Lise Saunders by Lark Books (2005).
