Beadwork, December 2015/January 2016

FC_BW_DecJan_Web-noborderIn the December 2015/January 2016 issue of Beadwork magazine, we have many things to celebrate. First, we say thank you to our 2015 designers of the year. Their final designs as DOY’s include gorgeous earrings by Penny Dixon, a festive holiday bracelet by Cindy Holsclaw, and a herringbone necklace by Barbara Falkowitz and Amy Haftkowycz made with knotted ropes and beaded-bead fringe. We also enjoyed working with many artists from around the world, including Patrick Duggan, Debora Hodoyer, and Carole E. Hanley. See their one-of-a-kind designs and many others in this impressive issue. GET YOUR COPY HERE.
