Overview

Beading Works of Art is a series of beadwork project books, inspired by the colors, textures, and formsof historical art and craft traditions. The authors present full instructions for 12 one-of-a-kind beadwork projects inspired by their favorite masterpieces—by some of the world’s finest artists.

In this volume, working with a “canvas” of beads, thread, and a variety of techniques—from stringing to weaving—readers learn to recreate the jewelry and home decor objects of the Art Nouveau period, an art style known for its graceful, flowing curves and natural shapes. The historical photograph that inspired each project and detailed step-by-step instructions and drawings are included, too.
