Jean Power coming to BeadFX

You've seen her in the magazines. You've seen her books. Now you can see her at BeadFX.
Who am I talking about? Jean Power, of course!

Jean Power
Selected as a 2012 Beadwork Designer of the Year, Jean is an award-winning jewellery designer, writer and teacher based in London, England. In June, Jean will be travelling to Canada to teach three classes at BeadFX.

As a lover of seed beads, I've tried a couple of Jean's projects in her latest book, Geometric Beadwork. Her instructions are very clear and easy to follow. Of course, there is nothing like learning in a class setting from the master herself!
