Synopses & Reviews
Beadwork magazine's special issues were mined for this collection of more than 50 elegant and trendy designs from past years along with the debut of ten new projects, all from the Beadwork design team. The book begins with a technique tutorialStringing 101that introduces the stringing tricks of the trade used to create these pieces; lessons extend to even more methods, such as crimping and adding jump rings and clasps, with some insider design tips. Photographs, illustrations, and instructions walk beaders of all levels through designs like the Water Nymph Bracelet, Superstar Lariat, and Purple Power Cuff. Reviewing the elements and focusing on design, this diverse workbook allows beaders to simply follow the instructions or go where the imagination leads.
