Art & Artists - Me & my Friends #16

Welcome to the World
of Sylvia Kubilus-Elam
Sylvia has been
beadweaving since
1992. She is also a
teacher of the craft.
Her work has been
featured in 2 published
beading books, one being
The Illustrated Bead Bible.

I found Sylvia while
playing around in
Artfire. I think that
her work is stunning.
A few years ago she
taught herself to
Bead Crochet and
Knit Crochet which
are exampled here.
She and another share a shop on Artfire.
Beadacious1221 is her shop's name and you will
love her unique and earthy style.

I have truly
enjoyed looking
at and writing
about sylvia's
jewelry. She is
a true artist.

Thank You so much for creating this blog post about my work!! I will post it on my blogspot: if I, that is so sweet of you!
Yes I do still teach, but only out of my home as I am full-time caregiver to my Momma.
Thanks so much again for the promo.

I am just now starting to play with the Bead crochet. Looking for nice ways to finish them off, before adding my handmade Lampwork beads. Beautiful Blog. Very interesting.
