September Program 2016

Cindy Holzclaw our guest instructor will present a Trunk Show at our September Meeting. Members will be able to Meet Cindy and purchase her beautiful and unique kit designs.  Cindy is a Beadwork Magazine 2015 Designer of the Year. 

Cindy says "... fascination with new and interesting structures permeates my beading designs. I love to experiment with newly developed seed bead shapes, as well as the wide variety of shapes of Czech glass beads and Swarovski crystals. I enjoy the design process of combining beautiful colors and shapes of beads with the intellectual challenge of engineering the beaded object. Much care is taken to ensure that the resulting beaded beads are sturdy and durable for long lasting wearability, so that the beaded art can be enjoyed for years to come. While regularly shaped seed and glass beads form the core of my work, I also experiment with incorporating freshwater pearls, semiprecious stones, and handmade lampwork beads into my designs.

With a strong foundation as a trained academic, I share my beading ideas through writing detailed patterns and teaching. My patterns are fully illustrated and complete with troubleshooting tips to help students navigate through technical challenges, and my patterns also include photos of variations to inspire my students to explore additional possibilities for the designs. I love to see what my students will create with these designs...".

 Members are asked to bring their own projects to work on during the meeting.
