Welcome spring with a handful of irresistible projects in the April/May 2010 issue of Beadwork. The soft tones and elegant filigrees in the necklace and bracelet that grace this issue’s cover embody the spirit of the season. These pieces inspire with the unique ways in which beadweaving stitches are used to join seed beads and pressed-glass rounds. Welcome longer days and more sunshine with a brilliantly colored bead-embroidered cuff. Or, unveil the most time-honored symbol of spring, the flower, in stunning and lacy wildflower earrings, a beautifully embellished right-angle-weave flower necklace, and a necklace with a contemporary take on the jack-in-the-pulpits. And take to the high seas with a seed-bead-and-chain necklace finished with an ingenious cubic right-angle-weave anchor pendant. You are sure to find a project to love with more than seventeen jewelry-making techniques to choose from in this issue.
