beading think tank ...

Dear Beaders, It is truly a pleasure to bring you this issue of Perlen Poesie. Our autumn issue is just bulging with beautiful designs and interesting information. You will find the glamorous, the definitive and the romantic: earrings, brooches, bracelets, necklaces and pendants. This time, as well, we present you with a varied artistic ensemble: our contributing designers stem from India, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Israel and more – each with a delightfully different style. Bead artist Nadya Gerber has a special gift: the impressions you get from natural landscapes hold a special fascination for her – which she then skillfully implements in her jewelry design. You can read about her beginning on page 10. And her autumnally-inspired necklace with its reddish-gold ears of grain will surely inspire you. Perhaps you would like to learn…

medieval jewelry

M onika Müllner, a native of Vienna, Austria, is an enthusiast of bead making, chain maille and wirework. Since her youth, she has harbored a passion for the historical and the archaeological. Not far from her home in Lower Austria lies Carnuntum – a former Roman legionary fortress with a civilian town. After a long economic upturn, the town (which at its height boasted a population of 50,000) was abandoned by its Roman inhabitants during the fifth century. Extensive excavations and finds eventually led to it becoming an archaeological park with an attached museum. The artisan produces replicas of the Roman artefacts. (Facebook: Monika Müllner)…

WITH GLASS ONE SEES A CERTAIN ORDER IN THE DISORDER S he developed her affinity for glass during her vocational training in Gus-Khrustalny (literally translated: Crystal Goose) in Russia, a center of glass production and processing. She enthusiastically told us what glass looks like under a microscope: “You see that it is made of crystal-like shapes. While quartz (a basic material) is a real crystal whose atoms are lattice-shaped, the atomic structure of quartz glass consists of irregularly-arranged tetrahedra, which themselves also look distorted (versus uniform). One sees a certain order in the disorder – one could also formulate it in reverse. The basic s tructure of glass is, in principle, the same as that of crystals, with the same bonds and basic building blocks - but it is more like…

simple elegance

T he basic element added with every building stitch is a diamond consisting of 4 beads. An unusal feature of this bead weaving stitch ist that forward rows (Building Rows) differ from return rows (Stabilising Rows). In the building row, the beads for the new diamonds are picked up and connected to the diamonds in the previous row. In the stabilizing row, the new diamonds are closed and connected to their neighbors at their sides. The fabric grows very quickly. Additional beads within and between the diamonds can greatly alter the appearance and widen or lengthen the individual stitch. They form the basis for the variations. The project “Faraday” on page 80 by Cath Thomas shows the use of beads between the diamonds. Interesting to know: The beads are placed at right…
