Featured Designer: Katie Hacker

I've been trying to contain my excitement for Katie Hacker and all of the rest of us since she announced she had partnered with Beadalon to create some new beading components called, Katiedids!

She has just added a video to her blog with examples for using these new bead findings AND shared that she made the cover of Bead Style Magazine with a necklace project using Katiedids.

This is such a cool story of a person who has been writing beading books and as she has learned and created new techniques, she has shared with new books along the way.

If you can stand any more good Katie news, she has also been named the new host of the PBS show, "Beads, Baubles and Jewels"!!

Yay! I can't wait to see the new episodes. I was always so happy to catch the previous versions when I would get up early on the weekends and turn on PBS.

I just love the vibe from the opening music to the smooth way they move from segment to segment.

Congratulations Katie!!

I've seen these cool bead components by Katie and have been wanting to get some to fill with polymer clay. A lot of different things could be done with those findings. That is awesome because the more options for any type of jewelry item, the more useful and creative it is!
