One of the most fun things about working for a bead store is the opportunity to design beading kits. After all, sometimes clients just want to grab a quick project that they know will turn out beautifully! As professional beaders (what a thrilling thing to call ourselves!) we understand the desire for fresh, interesting designs -- not to mention the ease of having all of the required elements pre-assembled. Of course, as beading teachers, we try to make sure everyone has ample opportunity to practice their new beading skills!
Sometimes, the perfect seasonal necklace is less about over-the-top design and more about assembling basic elements into a sleek, wearable pendant. Our new Crystal Link Necklace (featuring stunning quartz crystal and hammered TierraCast links) is just such a piece. Who knew two links and one bead could become such a lovely counterpoint to a fun summer dress? In this case, simplicity reigns supreme.
I've been beading for over twenty years, and loving every minute of it! I'm currently the creative director for Bead World, a growing chain of bead stores in the Phoenix, Arizona area. Our Bead World team has written eleven beading books (available exclusively through Bead World) and we teach an extensive array of classes in our stores. Now, with our online store, we can deliver our amazing beading kits right to your door!
