About the author: Alice Korach is the founding editor of Bead&Button® Magazine. Her idea in starting the magazine was that there were many people like her who wanted to know how beautiful beadwork was created, and she was right!
Alice has practiced almost all forms of needle art, taking up beading when she was eight and knitting at eleven. She always loved teaching and sharing her skills and knowledge with others. Alice earned a Ph.D. in English literature and became a college professor.
Alice moved on to Threads Magazine to be an editor in fiber arts, particularly knitting, and contributed many articles of her own work, most notably, the first article explaining bead knitting since the early years of the 20th century.
Alice knew that she was a good technician and a skilled designer, but she learned that she was also an artist when she had the privilege of learning pâte de verre from Donna Milliron. Alice created dozens of unique three-dimensional glass sculptures including figurative, abstract and floral works. Practicing art in glass freed something within her that has led to an artistic flowering in other forms of bead art as well.
Alice teaches beading classes at national conventions and at shops.
