The December 2009/January 2010 issue of Beadwork is teeming with designs made by talented artists. Though David Chatt is best known for his intricate work in seed beads, read all about the different and exciting materials he’s now incorporating into his artwork. Cynthia Rutledge, author of Beadwork’s very first Master Class, returns this issue to share how her discovery of gem-setting techniques has taken her work to the next level and how you, too, can give gem setting a go. Our four Designers of the Year for 2009 (beading pros Jean Campbell, Marcia DeCoster, Jamie Hogsett, and Lisa Kan) wrap up a sensational year with a great holiday-season collection of projects—from sweet and sparkly to bold and dramatic.
