BETSY BEADS: CONFESSIONS OF A LEFT-BRAINED KNITTER

I know all about those voices in your head. The ones that whisper that while you can knit just about any pattern out there, coming up with an idea for a project that is all your own is just not going to happen. Creativity is beyond your reach. I know because I listened to those voices for years. Not anymore.


For reasons I may never fully understand (and don’t need to!), when I learned how to bead knit, this new found passion started me on a creative journey that has forever changed the way I think about myself and the creative process.


This book tells the story of that journey with over 30 Projects for bead knit jewelry and accessories, small, manageable Tech Trials to practice the techniques and Essays that will hopefully encourage and inspire you. I hope that you have as much fun working with the book as I had writing it.
