Demonstration/Lecture: A New Twist on Dots!


Kristina Logan was named the Dot Queen back in 1993 when just a handful of people were making glass beads in the United States. Twenty-five years later Kristina’s beads are still full of dots and her unique patterns are immediately recognizable as her own. Over the years, Kristina is proud that her designs have inspired so many other beadmakers around the world. In this demonstration and lecture, Kristina will show how she places dots exactly where she wants them to be and attains her signature precision at the torch. She will also explain her thought process when she creates unique designs. Most importantly she will give the audience tools for improving their own precision at the torch and tips to creating unique beads that reflect each beadmaker’s personal vision.
