Issue 36 is winging its way to subscribers as we speak! As well as being a jam-packed issue, crammed full of stunning Oriental inspired designs we are also extra excited as this issue sees the launch of the British Bead Awards 2012. For full details make sure you check out page 40.
Some of our 2011 award winning artists feature this issue, including cover star Rebecca Anderson’s Sakura Lei, a unique collar combining beadwork and wirewrapping. Kristal Wick was another of our big winners – taking two awards last year – try her sparkling necklace, a variation on her show-stopping piece.
A new designer to Bead is Erin Simonetti – a beadwork artist with an unrivalled passion for looming. You're going to love her Prosperity Dragon Cuff. This project takes bead looming to a whole new level.
