DEDICATION

This book is dedicated to my loving partner, Chris, who allows me the freedom to express myself through fiddling with wire and beads. Also, to my most wonderful sons, Ben and Charlie, who uncomplainingly put up with the chaos of a photo shoot in ihe house and finally, to my parents, Hans and Marian, who are always there for me.
