Sherry Serafini’s Sensational Bead Embroidery

Dearest reader,

as I promised, in this blog post I will take a look with you into the book:

Sherry Serafini’s Sensational Bead Embroidery

This book is published in Lark Jewelry & Beading’s celebrated Beadweaving Master Class series, where you can find wonderful guides from embroiderers and other beaders. They show their techniques and the books are really interesting.

Sherry Serafini is one of the world’s top bead embroiderers. Since 1997 she is creating stunning pieces. She teaches and lectures in the USA. The most popular fans of her who wear her pieces are Steven Tyler, Melissa Etheridge and Fergie.

Sherry Serafini has written several books. In this book, Sherry Serafini shows wonderful pieces – cuffs, necklaces, brooches, earrings…. It is a guide to her techniques. She explains stitches, colors and gives instructions for 25 gorgeous projects. She is my favorite beading artist!


In my next blog post I will show you a quite freaky embroidered piece I made.


Thanks for your attention.

My first flexible bracelet

Dearest reader,

as I promised, in this blog post you will see my first flexible bracelet. Beforehand I used brass bracelets for the stabilization inside. I was not satisfied with this method so I tried it without.


As you can see, the basis is the same as with brass inside – but the bracelet is flexible. You just have to measure the exact width of your wrist to fit perfectly. Do not forget that the clasp will give some more centimeters!

The clasp: You have a lot of possibilities for the clasp. In this case I decided to hand make a toggle myself, using the same beads I used for the embroidery itself. Once you have done it, the next time it will be a lot easier! 😉

You can also use a finished (bought) clasp, or you can use a button. You see, many many options!

In my next blog post I am going to show you my master piece!

Thanks for your attention.

Welcome, dearest reader,

here we are! At least social networks take such a big space in our days, I am going to start my blog.

This blog is about beads, beading, beadaholic, beadcrazy, beaddaily, beadatnight,…. I am addicted to beads in every form, with every structure, in all colours.

I do not make beads – I work with them.

Let me take you with me in my world of beads.
