This issue is packed with 20+ designs for spring that will have your inner creative voice singing like a robin when you see the gorgeous palette of colors, textures, and inspired variations of your favorite beadwork techniques.

You will not be able to resist making one of these 5 botanical beauties from this delightful Bracelet Bouquet arrangement featured in the April/May issue of Beadwork.
