Kelly Nealon, Editor We have loads of lovely beaded jewellery projects for you to make in this issue and some interviews with the best in the beading biz. Melbourne beader Melissa Trudinger created our Cover bracelet project - beautiful Autumn toned beads and an oak leaf ceramic focal from Blue Mudd. We fell in love with it - sure you will too!
