Maggie Meister

Bead Art

Maggie’s love of history, archeology & beads has been a part of her life since she was a young girl. These passions merged when she moved to Naples Italy and she began to interpret the ancient designs and motifs using seed beads and beadweaving techniques. 

She teaches both in the U.S. and internationally and her work has been featured in major beadwork magazines and in Masters Beadweaving. Her work has been shown in London, Milan, and Capri.

Her first book Classical Beadweaving has been published by Lark in 2011. She lives in Norfolk, Virginia with her husband and two sons. She continues to travel regularly to Italy and her beloved Naples for inspiration
