2013 Women in Glass

Pin It
For those not in the glass world, The Flow is one of the premier glass magazine for flameworkers. Once a year they come out with a Women in Glass edition, where they feature the work of many talented female glass workers. I've known for a month or so now that I'd have my work in there, but was asked not to discuss it until the issue hit the stands. Well, I got my copy of The Flow today so can now share. :-) My 2 focals are #5. Proud to be surrounded by the work of some of my friends and other flameworkers whose work I admire. Such a beautiful cover too! That's Diane Sepanski's work on the cover.

Review: Kumihimo Basics & Beyond

Pin It

I had the pleasure of reviewing Rebecca Ann Combs' "Kumihimo Basics & Beyond" for Kalmbach books. I haven't done any kumihimo for some time so looked forward to this book. It didn't disappoint. It covers basic braiding, more advanced as well as various beaded kumihimo techniques with wonderful photos for those of us visual  learners. I particularly liked the 1 page, String Theory, in which she discusses some possibly problems and what to do about it. Highly recommended!
