BABE! 2015 - Midnight Foliage ~ Deborah Staehle

Meet Deborah Staehle:
Deborah began beading 19 years ago while living on Oahu and taking every class and workshop offered through the Bead Society of Hawaii. She moved to Stockton, CA in 2000, and soon after began working at the local bead stores there. Since then, she's networked with other bead stores, like the Garden of Beadin', and taught the basics to many students, sharing her unique style and passion for color arrangements.

A pe**te variation creates the leaves, and the chain is stitched using a right angle weave and netting combination. Swarovski pearls and crystals tie it all together into an elegant piece of jewelry.

BABE! 2015 - Torch Enameling ~Steven James

Meet Steven James:
Steven spent his childhood breaking his art teacher’s rules – coloring outside the lines, peeling the wrapper off crayons and making glue skin in his palm. Now that he is older, wiser and craftier he still wants to break the rules, but he needs you to join in the fun.

I know you’re a super hero…managing multiple tasks, getting the job done when no one else can and making the most of it all…but does the rest of the world know how amazing you are? Say it with Comic Book Components. Register before it's too late.

BABE! 2015 - Melodies in Metal ~Eva Sherman

Meet Eva Sherman:
Eva began beading as a way to spend time with her daughters but soon became hopelessly addicted. In 2005 she traded in her architectural career for the opportunity to spend all her time among beads, and opened Grand River Bead Studio in Cleveland, Ohio.
