Description
The August/September 2009 issue of Beadwork brings you twenty-one inspiring jewelry designs for fall, including four projects that tastefully mix metal components with seed beads and a gallery of seven designs that incorporate trendy lampworked beads. Our four Designers of the Year—beading pros Jean Campbell, Marcia DeCoster, Jamie Hogsett, and Lisa Kan—continue to shine. From a crystal and pearl collar fit for a bridal party to a necklace with an earthy mix of chain mail and layered square stitch, you’re sure to love these projects from our top designers. Don’t miss our Master Class with Nancy Cain where she shows you how to achieve beading perfection by simply minding the basics. For more fresh projects that explore 13 beading techniques (right-angle weave, peyote stitch, herringbone stitch, and more) and get you geared up for fall, pick up this latest issue of Beadwork.

Layered square-stitched medallions and natural brass–hued chain mail complement the polymer and seed beads’ soothing combination of brown and blue
