Publisher Comments:

With this comprehensive skill-building guide at hand, jewelers of all levels can craft 30 stunning one-of-a-kind beads in shimmering silver, copper, brass, and other metals. An introduction to metalworking provides the basics, followed by creative design ideas and techniques specific to metal beadwork. Transform commercial beads using simple stamping, chasing, and dimpling. Use cold connections to produce riveted and woven beads from sheet and wire. Roll a simple Crescent Roll Bead, and create variations in the form by using patterned, textured, or hammered sheet metal. Crafters will build a repertoire of skills as they progress, and learn numerous ways to embellish the beads surface and add decorative elements. An extensive gallery of handmade beads provides a wealth of inspiration.
A Selection of the Crafters Choice Book Club.

Diane Prokop, November 26, 2007 (view all comments by Diane Prokop)
I love this book! It's the most innovative jewelry how-to book I've run across in years plus it's just a delight to peruse with all it's full-color pics. With Pauline's help, you won't need a lot of new tools to make spectacularly embellished beads that are unique and hip. For some projects Pauline shows you how to transform boring store-bought beads into beads that you would pay big dollars for on the retail market. Lark Books spared no expense in printing this beautifully done and inspiring book. You'll definitely get your money's worth when you buy this book.
