Katie Hacker

Katie HackerKatie Hacker is an artist and writer who started designing her own jewelry as a teenager when she couldn't find fashionable clip earrings for her un-pierced ears. A prolific author whose books have sold more than half-a-million copies, Katie has provided beading advice for 12 seasons as the presenter of Beading Lessons on "Beads, Baubles & Jewels." She moved over to the host's chair in the 13th season. Viewers connect with her approachable style and "you can do it!" attitude.

Katie regularly contributes how-to projects and articles to a variety of magazines and is a columnist for Beadwork. She's passionate about demystifying jewelry making and specializes in projects that are fashionable and fun. She writes a popular blog on her website, "I love helping people find their source of creativity through beads," Katie says. Her workshops at national venues like the Bead & Button Show and the Create Your Style in Tucson SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS Event feature techniques for creating boutique-style jewelry.

In 2010, Katie partnered with Beadalon to produce a unique line of findings for jewelry making called Katiedids™ Creative Components. Katiedids are specially designed to give jewelry makers the power to customize their creations. Each piece provides a channel-set effect for beads, flatbacks, fibers, polymer clay, resin, and more. The donuts, sticks and pendants can be filled in a simple manner, allowing beginners to easily add a high fashion look to their hand beaded jewelry. Or, designers can use more advanced techniques with Katiedids to personalize and set their work apart.

Katie and her husband have two kids who love doing crafts, playing outside and reading books. Funnily enough, those are three of Katie's favorite activities, too!

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I love that all of Mrs. Hacker's projects are all in one place. I haven't looked through all of them...yet. The ones I have seen, I love. I don't like that there are no pictures for most of the ones I did see. Others have pictures so small they are very difficult to see. Are pictures something that may be added in the future?

Katie, I just finished looking through all of your projects, you have some great pieces that I plan on making; starting tonight. Wish I had your talent!!

Katie, you are very talented.... Keep up the good work!
