The February/March 2017 issue of Beadwork features eighteen must-have designs including those from our brand new Designers of the Year: Kassie Shaw, Melissa Grakowsky Shippee, and Agnieszka Watts. In Melissa’s Crystal Falls Earrings, chain and bezeled pear-shaped fancy stones come together to create a sleek, unique pair of earrings in a lovely aqua and pewter palette. The Vortices Bracelet by Kassie Shaw uses peyote and herringbone stitches to form swirling units that, with snap sets, create a hidden closure and a continuous pattern when worn. Also in this issue, learn the foolproof way to master CRAW with gorgeous Swarovski crystals and pearls, and discover a sampling of Kelly Wiese’s new book of romantic, vintage-inspired designs, Exotic Adornments.
