Episode 2601: In the Eyes of an Artist
Artists see things differently. Our first featured bead type is pierced metal. Then, artist Kate Richbourg creates Frida Kahlo inspired ear wires that feature the motifs in Kahlo’s paintings. Next, artist Brenda Schweder encases found objects in a Joseph Cornell inspired piece that shows off Cornell’s iconic style. Tammy Honaman ends the episode with the first in a series of projects highlighting artists’ favorite materials; she begins with chenille stitch, showing how changing the bead color and finish changes the design.
Episode 2602: Inspired by Clay
We begin with a look at polymer beads in all their different forms. Then, artist Syndee Holt demonstrates a project entitled “4 Sisters.” This set of 4 companion pieces exudes a modern art style, with bold graphics. We finish with bead artist Allie Buchman and bead weaving using various shaped beads in different designs.
Episode 2603: Natural Basics
In the hands of an artist, even the simplest materials take on a new life. We begin with stone cabochons. Then, artist Ashley Bunting uses jump rings and crimp tubes to make a simple chain maille style chain with basic materials. Next, Katie creates a prayer mantra bracelet inspired by ancient art. Finally, learn the basics of fine silver metal clay and torch firing with artist Tammy Honaman and complete a necklace using just a pendant and simple leather cording.
Episode 2604: The Artist’s Relationship with Color
A common thread for all artists is their relationship with color. Sometimes it’s bold, sometimes it’s muted, and other times it’s noticeably absent. We begin with a bold look at color and beads inspired by Van Gogh’s art. Then, artist Kate Richbourg presents an artwork color study – laddering with thread. We finish up with artist Aja Vaz and creating hollow glass beads in a multitude of colors.
Episode 2605: Unconventional Art
Artists are known for taking an unconventional approach to their art – often introducing “non art” supplies into their work. First, we look at stamped metal for inventive beads. Then, Candie Cooper throws a curve ball and uses cookie tins for her project. Next, Kate Richbourg skips the loom for a loom-free lalique bracelet. We finish up with artist Tammy Honaman as she manipulates right-angle weave to create shapes and beaded beads.
Episode 2606: An Artistic Approach
Artists approach materials in creative ways by taking a fresh look. We begin with a look at dichroic glass beads. Then, artist Syndee Holt is back with clay in a new format -- liquid rather than solid. Candie Cooper finishes up with a necklace inspired by the months of the year and their corresponding gemstones for a beautiful gift.
Episode 2607: Artists Helpers
Inspiration doesn’t always come easy for artists. Sometimes premade “helpers” get our message across. We begin with our featured bead style – today is ceramics. Then, artist Eva Sherman uses a premade metal cuff to display mokume gane polymer. Artist Candie Cooper is next with a paisley pendant aided by die cut materials. Finally, Tammy Honaman shows how to solder with premade bezel blanks.
Episode 2608: Wire as the Artist’s Muse
Inspiration can come from a style, an artist, or the material itself. Today’s artists get their creative jump start from wire. Our featured bead type is lampwork beads and soft glass vs borosilicate. Then, artist Brenda Schweder is back with a Calder-inspired modern art wire necklace. Next, inventor Wyatt White takes wire weaving to a new level, making an intricate bangle.
Episode 2609: It’s All Relative
Shape and scale play an important role in all types of art, but they are even more important in beads. We begin with our bead material guide and carved beads. Then, Allie Buchman joins us for a tutorial on Czech bead shapes. Next, Ashley Bunting creates basic wire frames to make earrings. We finish up with peyote basics from Tammy Honaman and the art of color and edging.
Episode 2610: Modern Ingenuity
This season of Beads, Baubles & Jewels is all about learning from the masters, but we’d be remiss if we didn’t also take time to feature some modern ingenuity. Katie takes a look at beads inspired by Monet as a nod to the past. Then, Aja Vaz brings torch firing into the current world with modern torches, teaching you how to make tube-shaped beads. Next, Katie is back with old meets new, as we look at new ways to set crystals. Finally, Tammy shows us new and old loom types.
Episode 2611: The Artistic Process
Making art is a process that requires start to finish instructions. Tammy Honaman is up first with the basics of bead embroidery – what you need, the tools, and various finishes and shapes. Then, Katie Baum takes you through a sterling ring from start to finish -- learn about kilns and working in sterling.
Episode 2612: Time for Art
When we talk about art, we often imagine a painstaking process that takes a lot of time -- but today’s artists are here to show speedy techniques that still create beautiful works of art! Wyatt White starts us out with 4 projects that are super-fast and introduce a new technique. Then, Eva Sherman has tips for soldering jump rings. Tammy Honaman finishes up with ways to bring mixed media into your jewelry with resin. The process is super-fast, minus the drying time.
Episode 2613: Making Art Accessible
A key to making art accessible is to introduce it into our daily life. We begin with cast metal beads and pendants in our final bead inspiration. Then, Jackie Truty introduces us to the technique of sgraffito, using it to make plates to adorn the home. We end with Candie Cooper and a geometric bohemian necklace with a simple design that’s easy enough for beginners.
