The jewelry styles we present in the December 2010/January 2011 issue are more than just a sampling of the best modern styles our designers offer; many are a nod to classic jewelry designs. For example, an early-1900s design Jennifer VanBenschoten saw at an antique jewelry auction inspired her pearly, crystal-studded cuff. Randy Drobny’s use of materials in his quick-and-easy earrings, which were modeled off of a pair of antique earrings, truly captures costume jewelry’s classic combination of deep brassy shades and pearls. And Laura McCabe’s necklace is a tribute to her Great-Great-Aunt Aurelia’s fabulous 1950s style. Our special expanded Beadwork Challenge showcases seven designers-including beadwork from readers like you! Plus, learn to stitch simple edgings and embellishments in Jean Campbell’s department, Stitch Pro.

Stitch a modern multistrand necklace by Jill Devon, using embellished right-angle weave. Try tips and techniques for making a spiral-stitched rope in Jean Campbell’s Stitch Pro department.
