coverPrepare to cheer for Lark’s new bead book: Beading All-Stars (Sept. 2014)!

 

It’s a goldmine of diverse and stunning projects by eleven of the most talented bead weavers around. If you are a confirmed bead weaver, you’ll be blown away by Beading All-Stars, which hit stores this month. In it, you’ll find in it the awesome beading designs of Marcia DeCoster, Jamie Cloud Eakin, Mabeline Gidez, Diane Hyde, Glenda Paunonen,& Liisa Turunen, Melissa Grakowsky Shippee, Sherry Serafini, Amy Katz, Rachel Nelson-Smith, and Anneta Valious.

 

With twenty unique projects in a wonderful range of looks and colors, Beading All-Stars delivers a rich and varied choice of designs in a single volume. With the complete step-by-step instructions, you’ll be able to choose beading projects according to your mood, your sense of style, or when you’re ready to bead a very special piece for a very, very dear friend.

 

Since I’ll be drooling over Beading All-Stars several times in the next few months, I’m going to pace myself by describing just a few of the projects and their authors right now. More will follow next month. Today I’m concentrating on the work of Marcia DeCoster, Jamie Cloud Eakin, and Mabeline Gidez.

In Beading All-Stars, the diverse and revered Marcia DeCoster (www.marciadecoster.com) serves up two steely metal-colored beaded pieces that are right out of the Jazz Age. Her “Deco Bracelet” and “Erté Earrings,” both with a geometric theme, are perfect accessories for the person who loves to wear the contemporary versions of the swingy Jazz Age look, embraced by women in the 1920s who enjoyed dancing the Charleston. But you don’t have to be a flapper to wear these glamorous, silvery designs. They will look equally elegant with today’s fashions. In fact, they will add a layer of sophistication to everything you wear.

Jamie Cloud Eakin (www.StudioJamie.com) has designed the delicate, elegant “Flower Garden Bracelet” with orderly rows of pearly white beads and grass green leaf-shaped beads. She uses soft turquoise flower beads to create a bezel that surrounds a central, soft green cabochon. With the overall effect of a seventeenth-century French garden, this bracelet will add pizzazz to a lace dress, a summer outfit featuring white, green, or turquoise slacks or shorts, and even a wool sweater.

Jamie’s “Spring In Bloom Necklace,” a concerto in gray transparent luster, jade, and amethyst beads, is a delicious five-strand confection complete with shaped, bezeled charms and a large bezeled cabochon and flower pendant. For beaders who love to wear today’s multi-stand look in jewelry, this is an extraordinary, gorgeous piece.

For a sparkly, multi-colored, flower look, Mabeline Gidez (www.MabelineDesigns.com) has created “The Chrysa Bracelet.” Inspired by the multi-petaled chrysanthemum, the centerpiece of Mabeline Gidez’s irresistible bracelet is a flower made of concentric beaded petal patterns that bring the flower into three dimensions. The rose, lavender purple and violet iridescent sparkle of this bracelet is a delicious feast for the eyes.

Mabeline’s olive, gold and aqua “Mystic Sun Earrings,” which glow with inner light, pay tribute to the sun as well as to the precision of the stonework practiced by the Incas. These earrings will glitter and glow like the sun as they dangle from the ears of the lucky person who gets to wear them.
