Beadwork Magazine August/September 2018 Lookbook

Beadwork Magazine

The August/September 2018 issue of Beadwork is full of awe-inspiring designs. Whether you’re a beginning beader, a more advanced bead weaver, or a jewelry artist who loves strung designs, you’re sure to find something that appeals to you.

From cover to cover, there’s something for everyone in this issue and plenty of projects to inspire you. You’ll find two versions of an edgy “dragon scale” bracelet by Michelle Leonardo, one with a freeform dragon’s-head clasp and one with a more traditional slide tube clasp — but both equally beautiful! If you’re looking for a classically romantic design, don’t miss Melinda Barta’s Eleanor Bracelet, Kim Leahy’s Champagne Luster Bracelet, or Cathy Andrews’s Victoria Earrings. For a fun play on symmetry, check out Shanna Steele’s Desert Mirage Cuff, made in gorgeous colors for late summer/early fall. Try Maggie Thompson’s latest kumihimo creation — her Crossing the Bridge Bracelet is made from two strips of kumihimo joined with traditional bugle beads. And if you’re looking for a project with a lot of movement, don’t overlook the 9 Fast & Fabulous tassel projects.
