Publisher Comments:

Beading is one of the fastest-growing crafts today. Here is a resource that will answer every beaders questions from what type of bead is best for a specific project to what size thread is best for a certain size bead, to how to combine beadwork with other crafts such as weaving, knitting, and crocheting. The Beaders Companion is filled with definitions and illustrations of beads, tools, and techniques. Beadworkers will find all of the information they need to create beautiful bead projects from start to finish. This easy-to-use package is spiral bound, comes with a clear plastic sleeve to protect it, and includes a fake spine so it can be shelved traditionally.

Revamped, expanded, and still meticulously thorough, this reference is an essential tool for both experienced and new beadworkers. The original authors, both among the craft's most respected beaders, have revisited and revised the previous edition to bring it up to date with today's bead world. New products, such as stringing materials and synthetic waxes, are discussed, along with time-saving tricks and tips for every aspect of beading. Sections about off-loom stitches, stringing, finishing techniques such as picot edging and branched fringe, and embroidering, knitting, and crocheting with beads all feature updated instructions along with a new section on semiprecious stones. Full of definitions and illustrations, the book's step-by-step instructions, reference charts, and project photos inform and inspire.
