Julia Gerlach is a Contributing Editor for Bead&Button magazine.  A lifelong crafter, she has dabbled in embroidery, crochet, sewing, and paper crafts, but it wasn’t until she took up beading in 2002 that she began to find real satisfaction in her pursuits. She loves beadwork because it is so versatile and forgiving: if she doesn't like a pattern or design, she can just tear it out and hasn’t destroyed anything but a bit of thread! She has a BA in music and philosophy from Alverno College, where she came to accept that she was not going to be the next Itzhak Perlman. When she isn’t beading, she enjoys spending time with her husband and daughter, reading, and gardening. Read more
