Publisher Comments:

We go where no beading book has gone before and offer up projects that are absolutely wearable and that your brown-nosing cube-mate can only covet. If, like any self-respecting do-it-yourself gal, you still have a secret but slavish devotion to personal adornment, look no further. Choose one of more than thirty super-cool designs, get the basics, and whip up something you can't find in even the most exclusive Rodeo Drive boutiques.

Here's what you'll get:

  • The tools and materials that no beader should bead without
  • The must-know basic beading techniques, including stringing, stitching, knotting, and wirework
  • Designs ranging from ridiculously simple to sublimely complex for adorning your apartment, your friends, and yourself
  • Suggestions for customizing every design and personalizing every project

With a sassy attitude, fun designs, hip projects, and color photos of every design, Not Your Mama's Beading will bring out your inner diva.

Synopsis:

A totally different read on trendy beads!

Beads are a dynamite fashion trend that has spawned more than 15 television shows. Not Your Mama’ s Beading quickly covers the basics and then ventures boldly where no beading book has gone before. Cool, hip, and cheeky, it includes a variety of projects for creating jewelry, home dé cor items, accessories, and more. Beaders learn to whip up a tiara and add pizzazz to cell phone straps, key rings, and headbands. From cuffs to watches to wine stem markers to toe rings, these projects are so much fun that one bling thing leads to another!

Kate Shoup Welsh (Indianapolis, IN) has written or cowritten several books, including The Agassi Story (1-55022-656-8) and Webster’ s New World English Grammar Handbook (0-7645-6488-9). She also cowrote and starred in a feature-length independent film. In her free time, Kate can be found hustling unsuspecting 9-ball players to pay for her bead habit.
