Digital Beading Magazine Issue 15 - Page 16

DBM: What has beading brought to you life? ED: Besides it being the perfect way to relax after work, beading has had lovely side effects for me. I’ve met a lot of nice people during the years, gained new friends locally and internationally. I was invited to pubish in magazines and books. I have a permanent two-page column in a magazine, where I publish a small project in every issue - the latest was my 70th tutorial for them. My designs were published in several books’ gallery sections too. I’m a proud member of the Beadsmith Designer Squad. It is a fantastic opportunity to design together with the best designers, exchange ideas, challenge, motivate, support each other while playing with the newest beads! I’ve been in the Battle Of The Beadsmith competition since I was invited to enter in 2012. I’m a proud member of the Beadsmith Designer Squad.

I’ve been in the Battle Of The Beadsmith competition since I was invited to enter in 2012. I’ve been teaching since 2003. Now I have my regular classes in a nice shop in Budapest (gyongysziget.hu). And I receive more and more invitations to teach abroad too at events and in shops. I love these trips, as I can meet my online bead friends! DBM: And do you continue to learn as you teach and as you create? Is the learning process a never-ending journey for you? ED: Of course! Teaching is the best way to improve! You learn to see things from others’ perspective and it helps me make better tutorials. And we inspire eachother, they gave me a lot of good ideas I can incorporate into my jewellery.
