In my adventures of figuring how to use iPad for blog postings, I discovered (no thanks to the geniuses I have consulted), that I can email my entries. This is THE way to get images into the entry. The text however, didn't show up. It is all a learning curve and will get better with time. When I ask what I assume are rather pedestrian questions, the responses I receive make me feel like this is groundbreaking stuff. Interesting. In the photo are, l to r, Ellen and Janet. Both wearing their fine beadwork. Janetis showing us her needlepoint rendered in size 15 seed beads. Gorgeous. Let's see if I can link to her website. Wish me luck!
Carol Cypher, a professional fiber artist focusing on feltmaking and beadwork, is known for her provocative pairing of the two mediums.
Cypher teaches in Australia, Japan and across the U.S.A. Her work is exhibited and widely published in the U.S.A. and Japan.
Author of HAND FELTED JEWELRY AND BEADS: 25 ARTFUL DESIGNS, MASTERING BEADWORK: A COMPREHENSIVE GUIDE TO OFF-LOOM TECHNIQUES and HOW WE FELT: DESIGNS AND TECHNIQUES FROM CONTEMPORARY FELT ARTISTS, she is at work on another book. When asked to write a book on feltmaking for the Japanese publisher Patchwork Tsushin Co., her English manuscript was translated into Japanese by Motoko Natsubori and published October 2008.
She has shared her techniques on PBS, DIY and HGTV television networks in addition to workshops and classes worldwide.
