The first is very different from the types of reviews you're used to around here, because it's actually a work of fiction. But it's special fiction . . . because its heroine is a beader! She even works at a bead store, sells at art fairs, and submits her designs to beading magazines. Is that cool? I certainly thought so, and I just had to accept the publisher's offer of an advance copy.
Next up is a sneak peek at a book that's still on pre-order, and that lots of beaders have been anticipating. It's full of chunky, rustic, casual jewelry projects with lots of ribbon, fiber, and cord, mixed and matched with all kinds of eclectic beads and components.
This book is scheduled for release next month. In the meantime, check out these free "Boho style" tutorials here on About:
