Officially Sabine was a physician in her former life, but actually she was a crafter, long time before she ever entered the university. So it was only a question of time, that her love for many kinds of crafting and needlework one day took over her life again. In 2006 she gathered her first quality beads and quickly started to create her own designs. After teaching some workshops locally, she had the opportunity to publish her first book in Germany (Beader's Cookbook 2009). Two other books followed in the USA (Beaded Fantasies 2012 and Beadwork evolution 2014).
For years now she is teaching internationally in Europe, the USA and Japan. Her designs are based on a multitude of techniques and she loves to fade one technique into another, to use the strength of each of them which leads to the intended structure of her jewelry. Also her designs have a wide range in style and structure, some are rather „every day wearable“, others are made for the red carpet. Some based on lots of crystals, others more decent, playing with the multiple colors that seed beads offer, but all of them are made to enhance the little princess in you.

One day class - Intermediate/Advanced
Prerequisites: CRAW, PRAW, DCRAW, DRAW
Elbtunnel (named after a tunnel in Hamburg Germany which is known for its traffic jam ;-)
This piece is a mixture of cubic, prismatic, double cubic and double right angle weave. The different arcs on the base are attached in two layers, the base layer goes in one direction, the top layer is crossing the arcs underneath. Just like the current in a river can move in different directions in different depths.
What sounds and might look difficult is easier to make than you might think. Although I recommend to be familiar with CRAW and prismatic RAW.
Where the piece is made by completing the segments continuously, the students will be able to finish one segment in the class to be able to complete it later on.
