The Wait Is Over – Meet the 2015 Beadwork Magazine Designers Of the Year

The 2015 Beadwork magazine Designers Of the Year have been announced in the February/March issue! Don’t have yours yet? Here’s a preview of what we can expect from these four talented designers!

Cindy Holsclaw is the bead artist I give credit with helping me to explore more three-dimensional forms in my beadwork with her amazing geometrical and molecular designs for beaded beads. Cindy’s free pattern for a right-angle weave dodecahedron taught me so much about structure and embellishment! If you want to learn more about creating stunning embellished beadwork inspired by biochemistry, you’ll love these elegant and outstanding beaded jewelry designs.
Penny Dixon is the designer responsible for the fabulous Fan Flower earrings from the October/November 2014 issue of Beadwork magazine. Her innovative and creative use of some of the newest 2-hole bead shapes make her beaded jewelry designs a huge hit with beaders who love to create with the latest and greatest in glass bead shapes.
Barbara Falkowitz and Amy Haftkowycz are a design team that work out of their shop, Artful Beads Studio and Workshop. I had the pleasure of meeting them at Bead Fest Philadelphia last August, and was totally wowed by their stunning, vintage-inspired beaded jewelry designs. I love the old-fashioned aesthetic that makes their beaded jewelry feel like it came straight out of my grandmother’s jewelry box!
