Beading for the First Time (Beadwork Books)by Ann Benson
Synopses & Reviews
You've noticed them at stores, practically begging you to take handfuls home: shiny seed beads, tubular bugles, or fancy-shaped drops, ovals and flowers - go right ahead...Arranged in a question-and-answer format, it covers different types of beads, tools and materials, techniques for 18 easy projects (each building on the one before), and an additional 14 with a little more challenge. Try gluing, stringing on wire and on jewellery components, incorporating knotting, using pressure crimps, stitching, to make ornaments, napkin rings, pins, pendants, beaded needlepoint, barrettes, bookmarks, a wrapped candleholder and other great items.
Arranged in a Q & A format, this handbook covers all the basics: different types of beads, tools, materials, techniques for 18 easy projects (each building on the one before), and 14 more challenging ones. Incorporate knotting, use pressure crimps and stitching to make ornaments, jewelry, needlepoint, a wrapped candleholder, and more. “Benson takes the mystery out of basic beadwork techniques.”—Library Journal.
