Kerrie Slade

Kerrie is a great believer in pushing both herself and the boundaries in beadwork in order to create interesting and unusual designs. The inspiration for her work comes mainly from her garden, and she recreates her favorite flowers in beadwork. Her favorite stitches are brick, herringbone, and peyote, and she is increasingly trying to combine several stitches in one finished piece. She says, "The only real limitation is my own imagination!" Kerrie's articles and tutorials on bead designs are often published by leading bead craft magazines: Bead&Button, Beadwork, Bead, etc.
