N o project that is the size and scope of a book can be completed without the help of many, many others. For this book, much credit is due to Cindy Kitchel, whose talents as a publisher are exceeded only by her talents as a friend. Roxane Cerda, my acquisitions editor, was exceedingly patient and kind, even when I was more trouble than I was worth. Project editor Donna Wright s encouragement and suggestions throughout the book-writing process proved invaluable. And Elizabeth Kim, the book s copy editor, saved my proverbial ass on numerous occasions. Thanks are also due to Christina Stambaugh, who provided design direction, Elizabeth Brooks, who designed and laid out the book; Sossity Smith, who proofread it; and Kevin Broccoli, who indexed it.
Then, of course, there are those people who had the unfortunate luck to live with or otherwise encounter me during the writing process: my amazing and supportive husband, Ian, who never fails to make me feel beautiful, smart, and funny, even at times when I am none of the above; my gorgeous, brilliant, and hilarious five-year-old daughter, Heidi, who already knows how to correctly use the word scatological in a sentence (and, our views on etiquette being what they are, has frequent cause); my mom, Barb Shoup, who was a writer long before I was and has the resume and awards to prove it; my dad, Steve Shoup, whose encouraging words (specifically, Who the hell wants to read about beading?! ) won t soon be forgotten; and my sister, Jenny Shoup, who, in addition to being a mom, a wife, a dancer, and a writer also manages to work full time as an attorney and hang out with me. I love you all more than I can say.

Beadginning Remarks
Beadaholics Anonymous
What do Lisa Kudrow, Kate Hudson, Mira Sorvino, Jennifer Tilly, and Cher have in common? Yes, they re all actresses, that s a given. And, okay, you re right-nudie photos of each of these women are available online. That s not my point. What I m getting at is that all five of these ladies are beaders.
Of course, Lisa, Kate, Mira, Jennifer, and Cher aren t the only ones on the beading bandwagon. In the last 5 years, beading-formerly the domain of women who a) collected Precious Moments figurines, b) wore appliqu d sweatshirts, c) just couldn t see why Thelma and Louise had to die at the end, or d) all of the above-has exploded into a 1.5-billion business in the U.S. Not convinced? Type beading into any search engine box, and you ll net nearly 2,700,000 hits.
Considering that beading has been around since Neanderthals roamed Earth (and I mean actual Neanderthals, not your ex-boyfriend), you have to wonder: Why now? What could explain this surge in beading in the United States-indeed, this surge in nearly all types of crafts, from knitting to sewing and beyond (although not, I m guessing, those little latch-hooky rugs, circa 1978, which usually featured a picture of an owl, of flowers, or of Woodstock from Peanuts )? Some believe that this resurgence in the womanly arts (barf) is a direct result of the events of September 11, 2001. That is, the terrorist attacks on that day understandably made Americans a bit travel shy, which meant they had more time for home-based hobbies. (Supporting this if you don t bead, the terrorists win view is the fact that one bead store in Washington state actually sold out of red, white, and blue beads in the aftermath of 9/11.) Others suggest that the increase in craft hobbyists stems from the void that is modern life-the implication being that making things with our own hands reconnects us with our, well, Neanderthal selves. (No offense.) The lousy economy hasn t hurt either; do-it-yourself types can create extremely nice jewelry for much less than comparable store-bought pieces. And of course, there s the never-ending quest to wear something unique, something that your obnoxious, brown-nosing cube-mate can only covet.
For whatever reason, there s no doubt about it: Beading has become cool. And like many other cool things-illicit drugs come to mind (not that I m endorsing them, of course)-beading is also addictive. For one, beads are shiny, and anyone who s anyone knows that handling shiny objects is habit-forming. Plus, beading provides an immediate rush. Forget knitting. Making a single sweater can take longer than growing your pixie haircut into a Maxim babe s mane. With beading, you can crank out any number of trinkets in the time it takes to pluck your mustache. And of course, although certain beading techniques do require some skill, it s possible to make many beautiful pieces armed only with the ability to poke thread through a bead. To sum things up, if you like shiny things, have the attention span of cotton, and possess opposable thumbs, beading is the hobby for you.
