Bead Simple: Essential Techniques for Making Jewelry Just the Way You Want It Cover

 

Staff Pick

Susan Beal might just be the friendliest crafter in Portland, so it's no surprise that the projects in Bead Simple are as sparkly and charming as the author herself. Bead Simple features 50 handcrafted jewelry projects, each accompanied by two variations, for a grand total of 150 unique creations. Dazzling photos and easy-to-follow instructions make this an invaluable reference for beginners, while more experienced or courageous crafters will delight in the versatility of Beal's designs, which can be customized with the beads and stringing materials of your choice.

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Most beading books include a mix of patterns but call for very specific beads and materials. So if crafters don't like the beads used in the projects, or don't have them in hand, they won't enjoy the projects, no matter how beautiful they are. But Susan Beal has untangled this knotty problem. "Bead Simple "is the first work of its kind that offers stunning jewelry patterns that can be completely customized with a variety of beads and stringing materials. Based on simple, yet effective beading techniques, this strikingly illustrated pattern guide includes 50 glittering designs, each featuring two bold variations for a total of 150 projects that can easily be achieved with different materials or tweaks. With hot guest designers, including DIY Network's Jennifer Perkins and Megan Nicolay, author of the bestselling "Generation T," here is the one book that finally offers jewelers the versatility to let their unique personalities shine through.

Synopsis:

This work offers stunning jewelry patterns that can be completely customized with a variety of beads and stringing materials. Based on simple, yet effective beading techniques, this strikingly illustrated pattern guide includes 50 glittering designs.
