Beadwork, February/March 2016

BWCover_FebMar16

In the February/March 2016 issue of Beadwork, we reveal our brand-new Designers of the Year for 2016, Akke Jonkhof, Evelína Palmontová, and Nichole Starman. We were first introduced to Akke’s work on Facebook, where groups of beaders fawn over her creative uses for shaped beads and the attractive designs she makes with them. Our editorial team loves Evelína’s component-based approach to design, one that uses repeating elements to create gorgeous, often sparkly beaded surfaces in appealing colorways. We’re sure you’ve heard of CzechMates, but did you know that Nichole Starman invented and developed these interchangeable two-hole beads? We know you’ll love the designs Nichole creates using CzechMates and other beads! Don’t miss the first projects from our Designers of the Year as well as many other designs hand-picked for you!
