February 13, 2008 ~ Chris Franchetti Michaels, Editor

In this issue:

  • New Article: Basic Supplies for Bead Weaving
  • New Article: Glass Bead Finishes and Treatments
  • Announcements
  • Supplier Sales & Discounts

Happy Valentine's Day everyone,

This month I'm wildly busy working on my new beading book - and as a result I am especially serious about beading! In my first new article this month, I share my very simple, yet effective, portable beading set-up. In the second, I have begun a new glossary of glass-bead finishes and treatments. It's a work-in progress, so feel free to contact me with your thoughts and suggestions.

Until next time,

~ Chris
