About the Artist:
Kathy King is an award-winning jewelry artist, beading instructor and author of Bead Quilled Jewelry: New Beadwork Designs with Square Stitch.
She uses needle and thread to hand weave tiny glass beads to form wearable beaded sculptures. She developed the innovative "Bead Quilling"
technique by which the holes of the beads and thread are exposed, allowing the thread color to become an integral part of the object's design.
Kathy's work is strongly influenced by her engineering background to weave sturdy but flexible structures. Her color and shape inspiration is influenced by historical architecture and cultural patterns worldwide.She is currently creating new 3D bead quilled pieces.
