Cindy Holsclaw will be teaching online Saturday May 16 & June 6, 2020

Cindy Holsclaw has dabbled in crafts for longer than she can remember, but she’s always been most fond of geometric structures. After many years of exploring these mathematical forms in modular origami, in 2006 she learned that these structures could also be made with beads. From then on, she was hooked! In 2009 Cindy started writing patterns for her own beading designs, and in 2012 she dove into designing and teaching beadwork full-time.

With a background in academia and a doctorate in biochemistry, Cindy takes an analytical approach to her design style; she likes exploring different bead shapes and variations on the established beading techniques, and she’s constantly thinking of new ways to put beads together. Biochemistry and mathematics continue to inspire her and often show up in her finished work. As an educator, Cindy challenges her students to learn something new in every class, while giving them the tools they need through her very detailed beading patterns.

In 2015 Cindy was named Designer of the Year by Beadwork Magazine, and a series of her beading videos were published by Interweave in the same year. Cindy has taught at the Bead & Button, Bead Fest, and BABE! shows as well as at several bead stores and bead societies around the country. When not on the road, Cindy makes her home in San Diego, California with her musician husband and baby daughter.

Join Jean Power‘s Zoom class
Saturday June 20, 2020

I’m an award-winning jewellery designer, writer and teacher based in London, England. I first began making jewellery in 2001, having already spent many years painting as well as exploring different aspects of fibre and textile arts. Whilst I continue some of these interests, beading is my main love and I try to use them in conjunction with my other interests.

I am fortunate to get to travel the UK, and the World, teaching and sharing my work and am available for private 1-2-1 or small group classes for bead groups, shops etc. Please contact me for more details.

When not teaching, I love working on new designs and have a range of instructions available on both this websiteEtsy and bead-patterns.com.

In addition to many projects and articles published worldwide, I am the author of eight books on beading and jewellery making (books 9 & 10 are currently in progress) and was the editor of a beading magazine for four years. I have also filmed many videos on beading and 2 DVDs are available to purchase here.
