About the author
Training in art, color, theatrical costuming, glass lampworking, metalwork, wirework, beading, and communication have led Laura Andrews to teaching the art of beadwork. Her extensive background in theatrical costume design has provided a great deal of related experience, especially in the area of color selection and tonal relationships. Favorite past productions include Costume Designer for "Cats" and Jewelry Designer for "Evita".
Laura has taught throughout the US and in Europe. As a recognized international instructor, she is eager to share her love of color, design and bead, wire, and metal artistry.
