Hi Everyone!
Just a note my fingers feel lots better today. Thanks for all the nice emails. Speaking of emails,  I just love getting review emails. You know, someone purchased something from you and they love it!!!
Ok I hope you all remember Sue Horine. I wrote about her new bead store. You can read about it here. Anyway Sue purchased some of my Nicole's BeadBacking for her store. I was anxious to hear what Sue thought of my Nicole's BeadBacking since her flatwork is beyond extraordinary. Her designs are reminiscent of old time flatwork with the flare of today. These are just a sample of Sue's work.

Here is what Sue wrote.

Just a note to tell you that I have already sold several sheets of your bead backing and a couple of sample packs too! I am working on a big piece (a collar) and I am very impressed with how your backing is holding up. It stays stiff enough to hold its shape but supple enough to work with easily. I love the color too! Mocha Cream

Thanks Sue I am so glad you like my Nicole's BeadBacking.
And by the way just so all of you know Nicole's BeadBacking has been on the market for over 22 years. No No No No No... The first 5 or 6 years I actually kept it for myself. LOL  Wow I didn't realize it until I looked it up in my inventory book, 22 years. hmmmm....

Now take a few minutes to check out Sue's art. She is amazing.  Sue Horine's Bead art

You can now purchase Nicole's BeadBacking in signle sheets on my website

 Have a great day!

Honor and Integrity in Life in Art


  1. I am so sure that made your day!!!! And who wouldn't love anything you have to offer anyway. OK yeah I am bias what!


  2. Beautiful. I have had Sue's site bookmarked for a bit. I love her creations. I am even working on one of Laura Mears Porcelain Hawk pieces myself. Sue's are so inspiring.

  3. I used to use Lacy's Stiff Stuff until I discovered Nicole's fabulous bead backing. I, too, am hooked! Plus, how can you beat all the amazing colors it comes in??!! No more dyeing Lacy's! Woo-hoo!

  4. :( how much would it set me back to get some of your backing posted to England? I feel like I'm missing out here! I am hoping to do some bead embroidery this year, have started one cuff on lacey's stiff stuff but wouldn't mind trying out alternatives.


  5. Now I REALLY can't wait til I get mine!!!! Hurry up Mr. Mailman!!

  6. When I'm grown I want to make pieces that are as beautiful aus Sue's. :-)

  7. Nicole..such a great email! So nice of her to take the time to let you know!
    The beads I won came yesterday...OMG..Love them soooooooooooo much!! I was so impressed that you thought about something special that I would like!! You are too sweet! As for sharing them on one of my art pieces..that's gonna be hard!! Think I'll make a piece for myself! My 6 yo grandson saw them and thought they were wonderful..he said 'oh, one for me and one for Amelia..look..a boy and a girl" answer was" No way..these are grandma's"!! Yep..I'm going to be selfish!!
    Thank you so much Nicole!!!
