Q&A with Susan Bowerman

TjeCan asked:
Okay. I am convinced! Time to buy that color wheel. I love what you did here!!!
Susan Bowerman answered:
Oh Thank you so much! Buy the book, "Beaded Colorways" by Beverly Ash Gilbert. It comes with color wheels in the back and templates to put over the wheel to try out different arrangements. It's by far the most inspiring beading publication I have purchased to date. And thank you for your kindness. You made my day!
Creadeus asked:
Beautiful! I also love the book 'Beaded Colorways' by Beverly Ash Gilbert.
Susan Bowerman answered:
Thank you so much. I do too! She is coming out with another book soon and she also has a Facebook page. Check it out!
KJewelry 120859 asked:
again, great color inspiration Susan!! I really need to buy that book! Maybe a "Mother's Day" gift for myself!!
Susan Bowerman answered:
I just posted another piece on my facebook Woodside WireWorks page with these colors.....you know me, it is easier to make something else than clean up. I like this piece but I believe I like the other one more. Now, about that book...You are a mama everyday. Buy it now!
