Tammy Honaman Reports Back on Beadex in South Africa

Fire Mountain Gems & Beads is known for its articles and free projects both on-line as well as in supplemental catalogs it sends out. I don’t always have the time to read through these as I would like to do. In fact, they are sort of a cross between catalog and magazine really. However, I was recently flipping through the January 2009 supplement and discovered a wonderful article by Tammy Honaman about her experience at the International Bead & Jewelry Show held this past May in Sandton City, South Africa.

Along with the article about her time at the show and the work she did as the Clover Mama Afrika teacher for beading, she also includes a beautiful peyote-stitched bracelet project that is a good fit for anyone who wants to try to learn some basic bead weaving. She used fairly large beads, Matsuno size 8/0 seed beads, so this means it will work up more quickly than many bead weaving projects which often use smaller size 11/0 seed beads.

I thought her article and project was something my readers would enjoy reading, even if they didn’t receive the supplemental catalog, so I asked her if she had any links that had this same information on the FMG web site. Sure enough, they do have the article and project on line, and Tammy was nice enough to send them to me so that I could share with you:
