My ol' artist pal Mickey T came down for the weekend and I surprised her with a little beadmaking workshop. We had a good time and plan to do it again! After Mickey cleaned my kitchen counters (sorry mickey) we got down to the basics of simple beadmaking.
The picture above shows my signature dichroic "batik" beads. I was lucky enough to have 8 projects featured in Lark Books "Making Bead and Wire Jewelry in 2000. This book is still available at Amazon and many craft supply sites.
