Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Beaders will rejoice in this long-awaited new collection from world-famous teacher and designer Marcia DeCoster. DeCoster has devised 24 stunning beadwoven jewelry projects that showcase dynamism and movement—from a simple drop that swings from chains to elaborate pieces with intricate components that spin around a core of beads or along a beaded base. They're playful, delightful, and inspirational!

 

Review:

"Beaded jewelry designer and teacher DeCoster offers 24 projects for rings, earrings, bracelets, and necklaces that have movable components. The designs are sophisticated and complex, but the generously detailed illustrations and thorough instructions will help even the novice bead weaver tackle them. The photography is sharp, clear, and helpful for interpreting the instructions. A 'Rings of Saturn' necklace features revolving beaded rings around a core; the 'Revolution Ring' adds a spinner top to a beaded band. A six-page photo gallery of moving jewelry by other artists is an inspiring bonus. If a stationery object like a book can adequately convey the energy and excitement of jewelry that moves, this book has done it with its compilation of beautiful and clever pieces."
