The Storytelling Jeweller

Hamburg Perlenkunstmesse 2019 | The Storytelling Jeweller

Hi!

My name is Erika, and I am the creative soul behind TheStorytellingJeweller.com. Beading is my passion and I invite you to bead with me at Perlenkunstmesse Hamburg 2019 – the biggest fair dedicated to beads in Germany!

I will teach two classes, where you can choose from four different designs. I will also have a table full of kits and unique, hard to find beading material and a SURPRISE GIFT. I am looking forward to meeting you!

Bead, play, love 🙂

The Star Storm bracelet was inspired by the rosetta windows of medieval cathedrals and the exquisite jewels from the past, full of preciously cut cabochons. Due to the strength of the construction it feels like a several hundred year old bangle made for a real lady, but made entirely from beads!

This layered cross with rich ornamentation is ‘rock and roll’ and super sweet at the same time.
Beware, you will at least temporarily hate me while the spiky Cubic Zirconia cabochon is slipping between your fingers! But during the workshop, you will secure it safely with Japanese seed beads and sparkly crystals. You will also learn how to make sure that the ‘wings’ of the Archangel, made of Swarovski pendants, are staying where they are supposed to be.
The main motif is complemented with sterling silver earring components adorned with a tiny, cute chaton, a glass cabochon of unusual shape and a baroque pendant – joined together with more glass beads and crystals.

After running a bead shop for six years I started to design beaded jewellery and write beading tutorials full time. I am a member of the Beadsmith Inspiration Squad. I love to play with colours and all the new bead shapes, but the my favourite thing is to see the happy faces of students after a workshop or a picture of a jewel made from one of my tutorials. I hope you will soon become one of them!

The tutorial is very clearly written with good charts and pictures. I am not so experienced in embroidery technique but it was easy to follow the instructions. I used on of the wonderful Esteban Kits. The beads and the other material are very good quality an the colours of the beads are beautiful.
