Denim Jacket Embroidery Patches

Design of the Week

Give a denim jacket a touch of character. All it takes is imagination, a needle and thread, and your choice of stunning sew-on patches to create something cool, original, and unmistakably you. Opt for contrast with pre-embroidered floral patches—perfect for prettying up a tough-looking biker jacket—and embellish it with tone-on-tone crystals that subtly catch the light. Biker chic has never looked so alluring.

WINNERS AND PORSCHES

at the Bead & Button Show 2017, Milwaukee

With 234 exhibitors and more than 9,000 beading fans attending 577 classes from June 8–11, the 2017 Bead & Button Show in Milwaukee was a huge success. A showcase of Swarovski’s latest innovations for Fall/Winter 2017/18 and SS18 was bustling with creative-minded beaders seeking inspiration for their next project. Most of your favorite brands were there, too, including Fire Mountain Gems, Dreamtime Creations & WhimBeads.com, to name a few.

One of the most anticipated events was the announcement of the winners of Bead & Button’s annual jewelry artistry competition: “Bead Dreams.” Having been presented with an exceptional level of beadwork from around the world, the jury’s job was tougher than ever, but a decision was reached after some sparky discussion.

The first prize of Swarovski crystals worth $450 went to Svetlana Kossman of Pennsylvania for her opulent bib necklace. Entitled The Last Day of Pompeii, it was praised for its intricate and sophisticated use of beads. All agreed that the fiery intensity of molten lava flowing from an erupting volcano was beautifully represented, creating a showstopper. Japan’s Kaori Nakakohji took the second prize of crystals worth $200 for Gloria, a finely balanced and stylized floral necklace. Nadezda Gerber from Germany won the third prize of crystals worth $100 for a graceful swan necklace called Under the Tuscan Sun.

Additional show highlights included the Swarovski CYS Make & Take workshops, where participants acquired new skills while raising a total of $3,086 for the Waukesha Women’s Shelter. The Toiletries Collection, where attendees could donate an item to the shelter in exchange for a raffle ticket to win Swarovski crystals to the value of $400, was also a great success. Fantastic work, beaders!
