New Press, Kits, Items

Just a quick promo here. I have been behind in my pimping! The newest issue of Simply Beads is out and has three projects that i have designed in it. Two are available as kits! So here are some links, as I just put them on the site:

The Boo Bottle is something fun and different for me! It uses a recycled wine bottle and the super cute Spookyhead beads to create this fun little candy filled gift! The kit has all the wire, string, ribbon, and beads you need, but you have to provide the bottle and candy...
The other kit is a beaded watch called Time to Pick the Daisies and it features my daisy beads in new earth colors and silver and glass. I am looking forward to getting my sample back soon, as I am currently watchless, and this is perfect for fall.

In other press news, I just received a copy of the new book by Sherry Serafini and Heidi Kummli, The Art of Bead Embroidery. It is incredibly beautiful and inspiring, and I can't wait to delve more into it. I saw at least two project that feature my cabs, one face and one button cab. I decided I better make a Cabochon category for the Button charms on the website, so that is a new option. Perfect for all you seed beaders and PMC metal workers...


  1. Love the Boo Bottle kit!!! What a cute idea.

  2. Thanks I had a lot of fun with it! The concept was due days before Christmas though, so I was in Halloween mode while making Christmas cookies. It was confusing!
