About the Author:
Huib Petersen has been working full time as a bead artist and teacher since 1998. In 1995, Huib moved from Holland to San Francisco, and opened a small arts and crafts workshop and gallery on Nob Hill. Inspired by a chance encounter with 19th century Russian beadwork, he discovered the beauty and challenges of designing with beads. Petersen uses different sizes of beads and a variety of traditional beadwork stitches to create sculpted bugs, butterflies, birds, flowers, and sea creatures. The result is a unique kind of wearable art that offers the intricacy of embroidery and lace, the depth of a theater set and the durability and brilliance of glass.

- I found these DVDs very interesting and informative, there is always something to learn no matter how experienced a beadworker is. The DVDs were easy to follow and very well presented. Sculptural RAW is my favourite technique and Huib has inspired me I have so many ideas now for new and exiting projects. Thank you (Posted on 11/1/2016)
