CONTEMPORARY GEOMETRIC BEADWORK

an open source architectural beadwork project from Kate McKinnon and a worldwide team of innovators

meeting beaders

I had a lovely time when I went to the Dallas Bead Society to teach in September. I met a whole group of beaders who I’d only known through the email and through their work – people who contributed to both volumes of CGB. They felt like old friends, as we’d been exchanging ideas for a long time.

I enjoyed that feeling again yesterday, when my friend Gail Crosman Moore and I stopped into Sandwich, on Cape Cod, and I met Susan Nugent, who had beaded a variety of creative and fantastical shapes that all grew from Winged Bangles.

Have a look.

    This is exactly what I love about CGB, you can go so many different ways with it. Beautiful.
