Bead & Button 2012 Classes

I have some exciting news to share! I'll be teaching at the 2012 Bead & Button Show next June! The show jury accepted four of my class proposals, three of which feature brand new beaded bead designs. This will be my first time teaching at Bead & Button in addition to my first time attending the show, so I'm just stoked to be going!

My classes are tentatively scheduled from June 8-10. First up is the Cyclic Orbitals beaded bead necklace, featuring three different sizes of Cyclic Orbitals beaded beads. The completed necklace includes lapis, smoky quartz, and Czech glass beads:
Next up is my Ice Queen necklace, which you might remember from last winter.
Then I'll have two classes featuring the two-hole Miyuki tila beads. I call this pendant "Tila Gardens" because the tila beads form little plots for colorful beaded flowers:
I'll wrap up with the Cubed Tilas beaded bead necklace, featuring the tactile and geometric Cubed Tilas beaded beads:
The 2012 Bead & Button Show will take place in Milwaukee, WI from June 1-10, and class registration will begin online on January 10. If you're going, whether you're taking a class or not, I'd love to see you there!


  1. Wonderful Beadwork!!!!

  2. Congratulations, the beaded beads are gorgeous as is the overall design!

  3. I am so excited that you are teaching! I live about 2 hours away from Milwaukee and just went for the first time this June. It was wonderful and hopefully I will get to meet you next year (and take one of your classes :-))

  4. Thanks so much Steffi, Marcia, and Kim! It would be great to see you at the show next year. I'll definitely post again when the class reservation system goes live in January, but if you have any questions about my classes before (or after) that time, just let me know :)

  5. Beautiful beaded beads. But what else would I expect from you? I'm so glad you've been accepted to teach your techniques in the Bead & Button Show. I wish I was closer so I could attend!

  6. Hi, do you have patterns for sale for your beautiful beads?

  7. Thanks Bead Doodler! Karen, I have patterns available at my Artfire and Etsy shops, and soon at my website, www.beadorigami.com.
