Interweave Create Jewelry Feature

Interweave's famous 101BNE - Bracelets necklaces and earrings has now been christened as "Create Jewelry" and is loaded with goodies for a jewelry enthusiast. Apart from the promised 101 tutorials there is a lot of information on colored gemstones and cold connection metal techniques which makes the book a great read.
Flipping through the pages, I found a lot of pieces incorporating leather and suede and hence knotting was the most common technique used. The range of the pieces (variety) and the ideas are far superior compared to last year's issue that it will delight all levels of beaders from beginner to advanced.
There are 8 different palettes (Sweet & Salty, Punchy Brights, Schoolroom Pastels, Feathers in Flight, Stained Glass Shades, Boho Beautiful, Berry Bounty, and Harvest Hues) and this time around they have chosen lighter or contrasting backgrounds so that the pieces are more visible.

Kudos to Debbie (Blair) and the entire team for putting together such a fabulous issue.

I am humbled that she chose one of my pieces to include in the "feathers in flight" section. Learning from Last year's mistakes, I named my piece after my brand and also included my website and etsy shop address in my bio. So a pat on the back for me :)

This year the editors didnt want a detailed DIY but a complete list of resources, which I went really mad trying to provide as most of my supplies come from the Indian markets; nevertheless its a great experience. I hope to be published in stringing daily too one day, as its far more difficult to break into with my Indian sensibilities in design.

Create jewelry  is open for preorder now! So hurry up and get yourselves a copy

I hope you find it interesting
Cheers
