BCP 06 | Interview with Marcia DeCoster

A Chorus of Urchins by Marcia DeCoster and the Dallas Bead Society

In this episode, I chat with bead artist and author, Marcia DeCoster. We discuss her 3 keys to a great design, Marcia’s sold out retreat Beading by the Bay, and her grand baby Malayna. We recorded this back in September, so I’m really excited to finally share it with you. I hope you enjoy the interview.


As promised, here is the link to the Rocky Mountain Bead Bazaar information. Registration is not yet available, but will be soon.

More listening options:

What do you think? Marcia’s 3 keys to design are: design inspiration, play, and knowing your stitches. How do you apply these to your own beadwork? Please share with us in the comments below along with any other comments about the podcast. Thank you!

    I very much enjoyed your interview with Marcia. You covered all the topics we bead weavers are most interested in! And I didn’t even know about the two “new” books coming out in the next couple of years! Yeah! Keep up the good work!

    Really great to hear the words of the artist herself. I have the book “Beaded Oppulence” and am learning so much. Truly, we are always looking for inspiration. But certain designs become your own when you play with your ideas. Sometimes the coolest pieces come from mistakes we make!!

    Thanks for bringing this to us…
