I'm in the April Issue of Bead Trends!

Autumn Vines Knitted Bangle
by Kristen Fagan
Bead Trends - April Issue

Check out my first published jewelry design in Bead Trends magazine this month! I adore all the texture in this design. The knitted Soft Flex Beading Wire is stretchy and flexible, the red beads add a hint of sparkle, the hard copper hand wrapped cones give the hand forged feel I love so much and the centerpiece is an intricate bezel design I picked up at the 2012 Bead&Button show by Kerri Fuhr with my original art print "Autumn Vines" set in resin. Pick up your copy on newsstands or the Bead Trends website and get full instructions on how I created this bangle on pages 34-36.

My wonderful friend and co-worker Sara Oehler is also featured in this issue with me! How cool is that?! I love the connector technique she created with Soft Flex Extreme Wire in her design. The silver and crystal combination is so elegant.  Be sure to check out Sara's gorgeous design "Wedding Bliss" on pages 114-115.
