New Color Bead Mixes! The Houston Bead Society held a Zoom class on Saturday, March 19th. We made two necklaces from a kit including one container of Bejeweled Treasures bead mix, pendant array and all findings. The technique we used is foundational: bead stringing. You can follow along by going to my latest blog entry.

You can string four feet of beads, that’s about two necklaces, with one container of bead mix. Kits and bead mixes are available in a wide variety of colors. Stock up at Bowerbirds’
Online Bead Shop

We have beading techniques and project ideas on our blog. Take advantage of this pandemic down-time to learn and play. Make beaded jewelry and try some new steps with wire.

Bowerbirds jewelry is designed and handcrafted by Kathryn Jolly, using vintage and collectible glass beads, her own fused glass, pearls, and both art wire and precious metal wire.

When the good Lord wills, and we do shows again, come to a show in your area to see our incredible selection of Czech pressed glass beads, most of which are also available in our Online Bead Shop; clear instructions and materials for beaded wirework jewelry; Mary Lowe Lukacs’ fantasy flowers on wire; vintage findings; custom bead mixes; colorful niobium earwires, silk neck strings and more.
