Bead & Fiber Jewelry: Elegant Knotted Designsby Jane Olson-Phillips
Knot one, bead two, and what have you got? Bold jewelry made from an eclectic collection of beads—one-of-a-kind lampwork beads, silver ethnic beads, exotic stones—and a selection of luscious fibers. These 30 beautiful projects show what’s possible when a time-tested technique gets a fashionable update with contemporary materials and a modern aesthetic.
The knots are simple and familiar to most crafters: basic overhand, square, and hitches. And once that’s mastered the rest is easy. Create a spiraled necklace out of linen cord and a single stunning enamel and gold-leaf focus bead. Work silky ribbon yarn in an open net to make an elegant lariat beaded scarf. How-to illustrations, beauty shots, and numerous construction tips help illuminate the process.
