What a wonderful gift Mandi has given to us all by creating this Podcast.
It is done so professionally and resepectfuly for this art form we beaders love so very much.
I found that the two I listened to were full of information and helpful. I love peyote but still unsure if I want to try the free form peyote. Will listen to more as I get time now that I know they are on here. I am really interested in the class you will be offering in July.
Bead Circle Podcasts
I listen to Mandi's interviews while I'm beading and they always inspire and uplift me. I really enjoy learning about other jewelry designers' inspirations, favorite techniques and their careers. I also love hearing what has worked and hasn't work in their beading journeys. Listening to the Beading Circle Podcasts is another great venue to stretch my beading knowledge, get to 'know' some of the top tier jewelry designers and have an incredibly relaxing beading session of my own.
