The Art & Elegance of Beadweaving
New Jewelry Designs With Classic StitchesBook - 2002
“Elegant contemporary jewelry....What artist-author Wells and her 30 colleagues conjure up in more than 30 bracelets, earrings, and necklaces is nothing short of breathtaking. All the projects can be readily mastered by beginners....One hundred percent of the fundamentals, from graphic illustrations and charts to accompanying text and great color photographs.” —Booklist.
On chokers, chains, ribbons, ropes, jazzing up a basket, adding texture everywhere: you can't have too many beads! The selection is ever-expanding, with beaded clothing, lampshades, belts, and pillows. And off-loom bead weaving is both simple and beautiful. A leader in the field shares her enthusiasm, going through the basics and on to more challenging projects. Decorate purchased beads to personalize them, if you'd like, and then weave a three-bead spiral bracelet, twisted ribbon Ndebele necklace, napkin rings, and more.
