Magazine beading

I’m having a happy moment. My work has appeared in not one, but two publications recently. In October my Pocket Money Princess bracelet appeared in the Beadworker’s Guild Journal, you can read about it here.

But Tada! Heather goes super international, with not just a project, but a lovely feature article too, in the Japanese magazine ‘Bead Art & Embroidery’, published by the Japan Bead Society. My copy arrived in the post and I spent a very happy hour browsing the beautiful creations, love the inspiring mix of materials used from thread, wire and  bamboo to traditional seed beads. I also love the quality of images that enables a non Japanese reader to follow the stories and project steps visually.  Hopefully their readers will enjoy a glimpse into my little corner of planet bead too.

I’ve added the Boheme flower to my 2022 workshop offerings, I had a mini breakthrough with the ‘Drawing with beads’ and am excited to share some new Albion stitch techniques in this class.
