Overview

Special Lay-Flat binding keeps the book open while you work!  18 full color pages.

Devoted to creating beautiful costume jewelry by stringing beads, this is the first comprehensive beadwork book of its kind.  It is an easy-to-use craft book that lets you create quality costume jewelry for any occasion.  Most projects use faceted glass beads in combination with silver and gold seed beads to mimic the look of the gem encrusted creations worn by royalty and celebrities - several patterns are inspired by actual pieces in famous jewelry houses or collections.  Large, clear, graphic illustrations are supplied, with instructions on how to string the beads, and the book has a special lay-flat binding that keeps it open for ready reference while beading.  Beading patterns ranging from simple to sophisticated, royal to romantic, and modern to vintage, allow you to create unique, elegant or glamorous jewelry for any outfit, any occasion, any holiday!

A concise section on Materials explains the different types of beads available and specifically what you need to get started, while the Methods section describes the process of beadworking - how to layout your design and workplace, how to start a piece, how to add on beads and thread, and how to finish a piece. In addition, valuable tips on designing at the start of each section (Necklaces, Bracelets and Earrings) will expand your creative horizons.  After this, the fun begins.
 
A diverse array of beading techniques are illustrated in both the Necklace and the Bracelet sections that follow, and they include quick and easy, as well as in-depth patterns.  The largest section has over 25 patterns just for necklaces: learn to create jeweled blossoms, chandeliers, dangling curtains,  or lacy networks - or simply create a necklace that elegantly shows off your prize beads!   The book concludes with over a dozen patterns for dazzling earrings of all types -  and most can be made within an hour!  Enjoy a treasure trove of techniques, ideas and great jewelry patterns!  96 pages with 18 color plates.  A must for any beader who loves creating beaded jewelry.
