Eve Leder started her career as a published craft designer in 2010. A year later her first published beaded jewelry project was featured on the cover. This inspired her to teach herself more about beading. Her work has appeared in over a dozen different publications: Bead Design Studio, Bead Unique, BeadWork, Crafts 'n things, Craft Ideas, Create and Decorate, Crochet World, Just Cards, PolymerCAFE, Quick and Easy Painting RubberStampMadness, Scrap and Stamp Arts, Soft Dolls and Animals, and Stitch. Her artistic expression can take many forms: beading, crocheting, decorative painting, decoupage, jewelry making, knitting, paper crafts, polymer clay, and sewing. She taught herself most of what she knows. Her new book, Casual Bead Elegance, Stitch by Stitch, published by Kalmbach Books is now available. The book is about making beaded jewelry that you'll want to wear while you are learning the bead stitches. This is possible due to how she developed the projects and the content.
