the big reveal

You know how hard it can be to keep a secret, especially when it’s a good one. My daughter and I recently surprised my mom by hiding birthday balloons in a storage closet. It was a thrill sneaking the balloons into my parents’ house and even more fun to later call my mom with clues that led her to the hiding place. The only challenge was preventing my four-year-old daughter from ruining the surprise. We were at least able to keep the secret until the day before my mom’s birthday. Now it’s my turn to expose a little secret to you and reveal our 2016 Designers of the Year. Believe me—I’m as excited to tell you this as my daughter was to reveal the birthday balloon surprise. Our stellar lineup for…

w.o.r.d. (what our readers did)

“I USED O BEADS INSTEAD OF DAISY SPACERS TO REDUCE THE BRACELET’S WEIGHT AND STRENGTHENED THE CORD BY USING 1.5MM LEATHER RATHER THAN 1MM. I KEPT ALL THE KNOTS AND REINFORCING STITCHES ON THE INSIDE LOOP SO THAT THE VISIBLE STITCHES ON THE OUTSIDE LOOP LOOK LIKE A DESIGN ELEMENT.” MICHELE WINELAND of Overland Park, Kansas, put her own spin on Michelle Gowland’s Pharaoh’s Finery Bracelet (Beadwork, June/July 2015). “MY BASE HAS MORE UNITS BECAUSE I USED A 6MM CUP CHAIN FROM MY STASH. EACH RIGHT-ANGLE-WEAVE UNIT HAS FIVE BEADS ON EACH SIDE AND FOUR ON THE TOP AND BOTTOM. I ANCHORED THE BOX CLASP ON BOTH SIDES OF THE LOOP SO IT LAYS FLAT.” PAMELA HOWARD of Chandler, Arizona, made small but signifi cant alterations to Jennifer VanBenschoten’s Treasure Awaits Bracelet (Beadwork,…

what is your favorite thing to do after you bead?

When I’m not beading, I love spending time with my beloved family—whether it’s by going to the beach with them, eating ice cream while taking a walk along the boardwalk, or just staying home and watching a movie together. —Svetlana Chernitsky My favorite thing to do after I bead is take a picture and send it to my “beady bestie,” Wendy. We then talk about possible changes to the bead colors, sizes, or shapes or different ways to change the pattern. —Honey Greene Most of my day is filled with beads: creating new designs, sorting through all my beautiful beads for the ones that speak to me (or the ones I just want to kiss—yes, I do kiss my beads!), and dreaming about beads. So by the end of the day when…
