Now that it’s right around the corner, I wanted to post again about my upcoming Bead Simple book event at the downtown Powell’s Books here in Portland next Monday night — if you’re in town, I hope you can make it over!

Bead Simple event at Powell's Books - make your own earrings!

I’ll do a short reading and show a bunch of the 150 jewelry projects from the book, and my Portland guest designers will be there with their work, too. Plus everyone who comes is invited to make a pair of Solo Earrings to bring home as part of a little jewelry 101 demo! I’ll bring pliers, supplies, and a big stash of vintage beads from my collection (like these sparklers) for you to choose from…

Vintage beads up for grabs!

Please pass the word on to friends and I hope to see you next week!

I’m also planning some book events later in the year (with husband and baby in tow) in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Raleigh, and Chapel Hill, North Carolina, so stay tuned for updates on those…

  2. Hi Susan, I have thought about starting to make jewelry, I really want to do something crafty, and maybe make a little extra money selling them on esty or something, I was at hobby lobby of all places, and I picked up your book.

    I just want to tell you, you have inspired and I think its completely beautiful and you explain a lot also about how to actually bead. Its so awesome.

    I haven’t gotten any of my tools yet though I ordered some, so I haven’t even been able to start, but I’m excited, even though I think a lot of my family isn’t really supporting me. Now I’m just trying to find cheap supplies. Hehehe.

    Anyways, thanks for you book. Anything you else you can recommend to me personally?
