Author Kathy King has developed a variation the decorative paper craft of quilling to create unique designs in beadwork. In bead quilling--instead of thin strips of paper--thin strips of beads, made with square stitch, are wrapped to form circles, scrolls, and squares. The holes of the beads, rather than the sides, are exposed, to become part of the distinctive design. The author works with simple and complex combinations of quilled beads to create a variety of jewelry designs. She also incorporates crystals, pearls, and decorative threads into the pieces to add interest and texture.

Kathy King is a bead artist whose work has been featured in Bead &Button, Beadwork, Belle Armoire magazines. Her bead-quilled necklace (Red Empress) was a finalist in Bead & Button magazine's 2007 Bead Dreams competition. Another quilled piece was featured on the cover of Bead & Button magazine in June 2008. Her website is kathykingjewelry.com.
