Cynthia Newcomer Daniel
Cynthia Newcomer Daniel has been beading and making jewelry for nearly 50 years. She has spent many years making lace, including: needle lace, punto in aria, bobbin lace, crochet lace, tatted lace, macrame, and embroidered laces including hardanger, cut work, and pulled work. Seed beads have always reminded her of the stitches and knots in lace; she was very excited to discover that beaded lace works up beautifully, and finishes so much faster than lace made with thread alone. Cynthia's work has been featured in Marcia DeCoster Presents (Lark 2013), Beads in Motion (Lark 2013), Sabine Lippert's Beadwork Evolution (Lark 2014), and today's top beading magazines, Beadwork and Bead & Button.
