IMG_0504Kinga Nichols was born in 1980, in Hungary. At 19, she packed up her life in a backpack and moved to the US where she has been residing since, albeit not at the same place. She currently lives in Boulder, Colorado with her husband Paul Nichols and furbaby Samantha Regina Nichols. Samantha Regina is not only her muse but her model as well. Many of Kinga's best known pieces were popularized by the canine model.

 

One way or another Kinga has been always making things, which started turning into a career when she was painting murals at the time she lived in New York. The murals were fun, but she did not feel like painting was her calling. Eventually she picked up a bead and Button magazine in 2007, found a bead embroidery project, and slowly but surely the obsession took over.

 

After that first project, she started creating her own designs and quickly found her own distinctive voice that allowed her to translate her imaginings into beadwork. Kinga is always brainstorming, and her imagination provides an endless supply of fanciful ideas that she translates into bead embroidery.

 

Her work first got noticed in the first Battle of the Beadsmith, quickly followed by her being a BeadDreams finalist in 2013 and getting 3rd place in the same competition in the Swarovski category in 2014, and a book feature in Marcia Decoster Presents, 2014. In 2015 she won first place in the crystal category in BeadDreams.
In 2013 she started teaching and she hopes to continue this as her chosen profession for a long time to come, not only passing on beady knowledge, but perhaps her unique way of looking at the world as a magical place filled with endless possibilities.

 Sunrise and Sunset Shores Bracelets

Saturday, November 4, 2017
10-5pm
$125

An all day long (6 hour) class, suitable for intermediate and motivated beginners of bead embroidery. The design is built around the focal that features a landscape . The pink version is sunrise, and the orange is sunset. The colors of both versions compliment the polymer clay landscape beautifully. To enhance the seashore- like feel of the piece, we will be using a lot of shaped beads which add great textures. This is a great class for those who want to figure out how to incorporate some of the new shapes into their bead embroidery, and how to work with daring, yet harmonious colors. Each finished bracelet will have the same colors, but the patters can be customized.

Floating Circles Stackable Bracelet
Sunday November 4, 2017
10-5pm
$125

Yes, we will make the leather base, from hide to bracelet, all in one class, no shortcuts here!
This is a whole day (6 hour class) that will help the students learn traditional leather working techniques, such as using a glover's needle and working with lambskin and incorporating a box clasp with all the leather work. These bracelets are quite different from most bead embroidery projects out there, and allow students to combine bead embroidery with new techniques. It is a class that beginners will get as much out of as advanced beaders. The bracelets are addictive to make and the color variations are endless!
