What supplies will the Austin Bead Society provide
Project packs for members to choose from
Danielle fell in love with the concept of jewelry fabrication in the late 1990s when she first moved to Austin. Since the beginning, first working with wire, she has expanded into basic metalsmithing, PMC, resin and alcohol inks. She has even been brave enough to attempt a random seed bead project or two (she has a fear of teeny, tiny beads and beading needles...). Claiming Austin as her adopted home, she shares a home with her husband six fur-children.
