The Spirit of Bead Embroidery

Oh. My Goodness!  This is truly the beauty of bead embroidery.

I received my copy of Heidi Kummli's new book today in the mail.  For a day when I just didn't feel well (couldn't breathe), this was the perfect anecdote.  Gorgeous pictures, insightful and heartfelt narration.  The beauty that is Heidi's beadwork shines through.

As someone who is very influenced by nature in my own beadwork, this book gives me an even deeper connection.  I've long admired Heidi's subjects.  Now, I'm determined to deepen my own work.

Do yourself a favor and take the day to enjoy this book.  It's available now from Kalmbach Publishing and pre-orders on Amazon.  I got my copy from Heidi's etsy site.  

Wonderful.

  2. This book is on my wish list! I'm so, so excited that there's a new bead embroidery book out. :)

    I'm sorry you weren't feeling well! It's wonderful that the book made you feel better, though. Books are good for that, aren't they?
