Welcome to the home of Bead Origami!
by Cindy Holsclaw
Bead Origami is the philosophy behind my geometric beadwork. Inspired by my background in origami and my experiences as a scientist, my beadwork designs combine many different shapes, sizes, and styles of small beads into larger beaded objects, which are engineered for stability and longevity. I share my designs through selling my finished jewelry, teaching, and writing detailed, highly-illustrated beading patterns so that you can also create these fascinating structures.
Find my written beading patterns on the Patterns page, and Kits are also available for selected designs. Find out where and when to take a class on the Workshops page. Browse the Gallery for my design portfolio, and visit the Jewelry page for finished jewelry and beaded objects available for purchase. Finally, check out the blog for all the latest and greatest Bead Origami news!
