The kids are back in school and the season of craft fairs will be in full swing for this issue. Those of you who sell online will soon start to experience your holiday rush. It's a good time to make inventory ahead for the busiest sales time of the year. And now onto this month's columns
Beading Tip Allergies with today's metals
Marketing Tip Drawing traffic to your booth
Featured Bead Artist This month we're focusing on Beth Blosser. Her beautiful beads resemble old mosaics. Please note that The Beading Times does not in any way participate in the sale of these hand crafted dazzlers and bears no responsibility for any transactions you may initiate.
Culture Prayer beads
For years Carol Ladine Lagosky created beautiful projects for you. This month we're rerunning her wrapped hoops. You could easily adapt this project to make several styles of earrings.
Design Corner We're taking a look at football jewelry.
When dreaming about this website, I pictured a place for beading enthusiasts to gather, to participate and to share their knowledge. I hope you all take part in shaping this magazine – I want it to truly be a group effort. Your input is welcome here. I’d love to have you nominate a bead maker or submit tips or projects (don’t worry about your writing skills - my staff stands ready to transform your basic instructions into publishable text.). Beyond your participation in the regularly scheduled monthly features, I’d like to see you guide the shape of things to come. What would you like to see? Want to edit a column, write a story or post a question for the staff? This is your place to shine or to bask in the glow. Everyone here at The Beading Times is anxious to create a homey place for you – just let us know what it takes by emailing me.
Wishing you happy Beading Times,
Sandra J. Paluzzi
