Back by popular demand, our pattern-themed June/July issue once again explores the use of repeating motifs in jewelry making. From projects that use repeating lines to add a sense of whimsy to floral and geometric designs, you’re sure to find a project that fits your style. Once again we also bring you the Pattern Play Challenge. In this feature, you’ll see how three designers use their favorite fabric and papers to inspire beaded creations. Plus, Master Class author Carol Huber Cypher helps us conquer cubic right-angle weave, a stitch often feared by beaders. Or, learn a great way to break up a rule-bound pattern with a bit of random fun from Designer of the Year Laura McCabe. With over ten great bracelets (including Nancy Cain’s 3-hour, $12 bangle) and twenty designs in all, this issue is sure to inspire your summertime beading.
