Meet me in West Palm Beach!

I am so very excited to share the news!

I'm bringing my looms and custom designs to West Palm Beach Florida, 
November 1 through November 6, 2015. 
There are three classes scheduled, 
one 'two day class' and two 'one day' classes. 

to reserve your place.

I'll be sharing one more custom design,
which is a special request, by the Bead Society. 
Can't wait to show you.

I hope these Beaders are ready for a new obsession!

Summer Bead Loom Cuff Class!




I am very excited to share the Exclusive Cuff Patterns, being offered, for my next class, at Bead Soup....June 13th & 20th. This class will offer many techniques to the beginner, as well as learning to attach the 'crunchie clasp',
(also known as the ribbon end). 

The cuff pattern choices are "Summer Dawn", "Summer Dusk", some are going to complete both :D ! Call the store if you are interested, 240-456-4568.

I just wish I could offer the way the bead finishes react and come to life, in these two cuffs,
by the bead finishes/styles I incorporated. These pictures do not do them justice.

"Carousel Cuff Go Round", Published Pattern!


I was asked to contribute a Bead Loom Cuff Pattern, 
to BEAD Magazine, UK, months ago. 
Their theme, for Issue 62, was 'Movement'. I got started creating a 
pattern to offer such a theme, too,.....A Carousel!


The pattern starts and ends, on each side, 
with only a portion of the Horse, being shown. 
This design concept helps to offer the 'go-round' aspect, 
of this cuff design. 

As included in my article,
bronze findings can be added to either the clasp or
as dangling charms. 

The cuff is also included as an inset, on the cover. 


Be sure to pick up Issue 62, of BEAD Magazine UK,
in either Print Form, or Digital Versions.
(Scroll down the link page, to see purchase options.)

Included are many tips and techniques,
never offered outside of my classroom, before.
Also true is the fact this cuff pattern shares more instructive insight,
than can be seen, in any other publication, to date!

I hope you enjoy recreating this cuff, as much as 
I enjoyed knowing it would be shared, 
with so many bead loom artists.

Fringe hanging ON the cuff base!


I love fringe. I love how it moves and makes you feel, while feeling it sway around the wrist. But, does the fringe always need to lay 'below' the cuff? Or, as I created here, in this next class cuff design, the fringe became part of the cuff pattern, laying on top!

On April 11th, I will be teaching these designs, as a choice each student can make, at Bead Soup, in Savage Maryland. I'm excited for this class. I am for all, of these classes :D

Fringing a Cuff ''On Top"!


    My next class, at Bead Soup, in Savage Maryland! This is just one version, with others to be shared soon. My mode is to work the fringe 'on' the cuff, as opposed to 'hanging off' the cuff. I can't wait to share the other versions! The class is on April 11th. It's a one day one class and
     I ADORE spending the day with everyone and their looms! 
    Call the store, 240-456-4568, for reservations.

Attaching a Box Clasp, to a Bead Loom Woven Cuff!




We are getting together, at Bead Soup, in Savage Maryland, Saturday Feb 21st & 28th, for a " Bead Quilting Bee"! Here, we will focus on attaching a 'box clap', to a Bead Loom Woven Cuff. The Simplicity of design will take a back seat, to t...he detail methods being offered. This class will allow you to learn how to "finish any bead loom woven cuff", in many style clasps, size and shape, or even
multiple clasps, to accommodate any width cuff.

I look forward to this class because it opens the doors, so the students can sign up, for my many scheduled "One Day Classes". The "One Day" venues allow me to offer new techniques and not spend the time discussing how to finish, with a clasp.

If you are interested in joining in, call Bead Soup 240-456-4568 for availability. If this class is sold out, please inquire about my future confirmed teaching dates.
