Q&A with Betsy Hershberg

Marly Bird asked:
OMG! I LOVE THIS! MUST MAKE THIS!
Betsy Hershberg answered:
Oh Marly, Marly, Marly..... You know I love you to pieces :-) But this necklace is part of my one-of-a-kind Studio B collection and I don't share information about construction or the materials in these pieces. However, knowing you, I'm sure you'll have fun playing with this as inspiration (which was my intention in posting the image of the piece in the first place) and you'll make it all your own. You go girl! Can't wait to see what results. ;-)
cathleen65 asked:
Beautiful!! My only question is...How heavy is it?
Betsy Hershberg answered:
Hi Cathleen! One of the wonderful things about these bead knitted beads is that they are SO light in weight! Yes, there are a lot of them in this piece but I know you'd be surprised to pick it up and see just how weightless it is given how substantive it appears. Also, the other non-knitted beads you see in this piece are made of resin, another very light weight product. So, if you are thoughtful, you can use TONS of beads and still have a very wearable piece of jewelry.

Betsy, this is really one of my favorites--I loved seeing it up close this weekend--even more stunning in person. Danielle
Betsy Hershberg answered:
Thanks Danielle! I'm always happy to have you in class. Your beautiful work inspires other students and reassures them that they too can create wonderful bead knitted pieces.
