a clasp made from seed
and bugle beads to make
the cuff much easier to
wear daily.
VANDA NAGY of Kreuzlingen,
Switzerland, was inspired by the
gorgeous simplicity of Csilla Csirmaz’s
Corset Cuff (Beadwork, October/
November 2012).

MARLENA AITKEN of Wichita, Kansas, made a matching set of


jewelry by using the same colorway for three different patterns:
Csilla Csirmaz’s Eye on the Prize Bracelet (Beadwork, February/
March 2012), Tina Hauer’s Drop-Dead Gorgeous Earrings
(Beadwork, April/May 2012), and Cristie Prince’s Chain of Jewels

We old-school beadweaving editors are usually pretty suspicious


when someone tells us they’ve discovered a new stitch. We look
down our noses and say, “There are really no new stitches, just
standard stitch combinations.” Well, every once in a while we get
a pleasant surprise. I was recently introduced to chenille stitch.

names, but it’s truly worth noting. The resulting rope is probably in

Artists’ Tips
• If you want to be able to pull the
pendant section on and off the ropes,
make sure your clasp is small enough
to go through the bails.
• You can design the ends of the neck
straps with any style of beads as long
as the beads are large enough to hold
the bails in place.

“I have always enjoyed the hunt,” says jewelry artist Alice Sprintzen.
“There is something around every corner that cries out for fresh
consideration—a new context in which to reinvent the ordinary, making
it extraordinary.” As a child, Sprintzen developed an appreciation for found
objects by combing beaches with her parents, searching for tossed-aside
treasures. A self-proclaimed “technique junkie,” she incorporates a wide
variety of creative methods into each of her pieces.

of color, and beadwork affords the oppor-

in them. I enjoy the element of humor,
which often presents itself in the juxta-
posing of diverse elements, to create
abstract as well as representational
pieces.
