Publisher Comments:

With this gloriously photographed and illustrated manual at hand, beaders can create awe-inspiring jewelry. It's the only current, comprehensive guide to working with cabochons--a flat piece of rock or mineral--and it covers all the basics, along with a range of new creative techniques and hot trends. Find out which tools and materials to use, which beads work best, and how to wrap them round the stones. Craft turned, pointed, twisted, brick stitch, ruffled, or scalloped edges, or add decorative fringe. For something dramatic, combine more than one cabochon in a single piece. Or, instead of natural stone, use dichroic glass or other found objects. Make a glittering brooch, funky bracelets, a wearable art necklace, and other showstoppers.

This is the very first beading book I ever bought. Using it I taught myself how to bead with cabochons, now I teach other people how to do it. I just love all the pictures with ideas, my students use it to decide what techniques to use on their pieces. I have created many beautiful designs using the techniques I learned in this book. The directions are clear, and well illustrated, easy to follow. You can mix and match lots of different techniques to create your own original work of art.

To call this a "how to" book does not do this work justice. Jamie Cloud Eakin starts with the basics, and via a mix and match approach teaches you how to combine different techniques to build your own masterpiece. The instructions are clear and well illustrated with drawings and pictures. Lots of pictures! I have used this book for inspiration countless times. A worthwile purchase for any beader who wants to learn what to do with those beautiful cabochons.
