My Experiment With Seed Beading

I have a new post up at Watch Me Create, a collective blog of various artists who write about the ups and downs of the creative process -- the good, the bad, and the mistakes!

My latest article can be accessed by clicking here. I talk about learning what I'm good at, what I've ignored, and what I may be good at but will never try again -- in this case, seed beading. This will segue nicely into a subject I plan to bring up in the coming months, about learning new skills, but that can wait for another day.

I hope you'll take a look at the article, make a comment there or here, and if you love that bracelet and have a 7.5" wrist and want to make an offer, well, shoot me an email.

Lori Anderson designs her jewelry in her studio in Easton, MD. Her favorite materials are silver and handmade lampwork glass beads. You can view her work at Lori Anderson Designs.


  1. i'll have to check out the article! thanks for sharing!

  2. Love the bright greens!

  3. Yeah, I can see why seed beads would be frustrating to work with.

  4. Although I've never tried my hand at any type of jewelry; I, as well, have a large hoarding problem. Imagine boxes full of art supplies all over the place; markers, colored pencils, watercolors, oils, brushes...oh, and the paper -I swear the collage paper multiplies itself ;)

    The bracelet is stunning, I love the color and you can certainly see the amount of work that went in it. I'm sure it'll find a loving home.

  5. Wow... I can't even imagine the amount of work that went into creating this beauty!

  6. Read your article. I love how you can really be honest with yourself. The bracelet is gorgeous. I wish it fit you!

  7. WOw fabulous piece. Love the turquoise! Looks like tedious work, but just lovely. Love your pieces.
