Tonya Kappes is an independent author who has written a couple of stories set around beading. The first is a short that begins a mystery series centered around the regulars at a bead store and the second is about a woman "finding herself" via beading.

From Bead of Doubt's description:

Holly Harper's life is finally getting back on the right track after her divorce from "what's his name." She and a group of divorcees have formed a strong bond plotting creative ways to get back at their exes by creating a self-help group known as The Divorced Divas where the meeting are held in Holly's bead store, The Beaded Dragonfly. There's more than just beading going on when Diva Marlene's rare Spinet Yellow Diamond goes missing and Holly was the last one to see it, or so they thought.
