Issue 13 (Jul/Aug 2007) Autumn Issue

Welcome friends to issue #13
There's crisp chill to the air, the crunch of leaves underfoot and the sound of school buses trolling for children in the early morning hours, it must be Fall!

We have two leaf projects that don't require a rake - SaraBeth Cullinan shares a stunning peyote cuff and there's a beaded leaf pen suitable for gifting to a guy or gal. Dottie Hoeschen offers a fabulous collar design to spice up your wardrobe and daughter Michelle has stitched up a black and silver R.A.W bracelet that goes with everything! Carole Ohl stacks triangle beads in a supple bracelet, and I show you how to use a Kumihimo braiding ring to make a densely woven wire bracelet. Who knows, you may even be inspired to start your holiday gifts a little early!    Deb Moffett-Hall - Editor

What's New
Bead Reamer Set

Bead Reamer Set
From the clever folks at Fire Mountain Gems and Beads

Set includes 4 diamond-coated tips that screw into a lightweight, but sturdy, aluminum handle.
I found it invaluable when working with freshwater pearls. The holes were just a tiny bit too small for the wire I wanted to use and the bead reamer saved the day and the design. Also great for smoothing rough holes in stone and metal beads to save wear and tear on your stringing materials.
