Laura McCabe: Closing Up Shop


Laura McCabe, of Just Let Me Bead is closing up shop.  Laura is one of the premier designers in the beading world.  Her pieces are unique and quite extraordinary.  Her web site sold kits, finished pieces as well as supplies for us magpies (beaders) to execute her designs.

I am particularly smitten with the new piece at left.  Is that a scepter for a Fairy Queen?  One you wouldn’t want to mess with?

Laura will continue her partnership with Ann Benson, and new kits will be available at Beads East and patterns at Bead Pattern Central. For supplies without a kit, I guess you’re on your own.
