This issue of Bead Unique captures a diverse range of projects and applications. The materials list for the entire magazine is like a Santa’s shopping list: it‘s long. We have always had a wide range of projects in Bead Unique—just look at our tagline: Beads, Art Jewelry, Home Décor, and Fashion. And the application of beads and beading in those categories is just as diverse. There isn’t a place in my life where I don’t expect to find a bead of some sort.
