Mastering Beadwork: A Comprehensive Guide to Off-Loom Techniques Cover

 

Staff Pick

A few years ago, I went to Mexico and bought what would later become my favorite bracelet ever: a brightly colored beaded cuff that fit like it was custom-made and inspired more than a few compliments. Not long after, I snagged it on something and, I swear, it unraveled in slow motion. Ever since, I've been on the lookout for a user-friendly beading book that would enable me to replace my favorite bracelet ever without having to scrape together money for a plane ticket. Carol Huber Cypher's Mastering Beadwork definitely fits the bill. With easy-to-follow instructions, clear and colorful diagrams, stunning photos of each finished product, and a crafter-friendly spiral binding that lays flat so your hands are free to create, this book has it all. To top it off, many of the projects featured are accompanied by suggested variations, so you can apply each technique to whatever project your heart desires... like, say, a totally awesome bracelet.

Based on years of teaching experience, this informative handbook presents easy-to-understand instructions with sidebars to help students master beading techniques.
