Overview

Elegant, old-world jewelry with modern style.

Working with world-famous Swarovski crystal beads, author Laura McCabe creates luminous necklaces, earrings, pendants, and rings for beaders of every skill level. The author provides complete step-by-step instruction for 20 projects (10 for beginners) — and presents 45 more in a photo gallery of design variations, teaching readers how to vary colors and shapes to create custom effects. All 65 designs are made with only three simple beadwork techniques: flat peyote stitch, tubular peyote stitch, and spiral rope. Laura McCabe also provides a chapter on making decorative embellishments, such as bezels, picots, berry clusters, and branch fringe. The concise instructions are illustrated with easy-to-follow illustrations.

  • Beaders of any skill level can create their own high-end, boutique-style jewelry
  • Goes beyond stringing to teach readers three basic beadweaving techniques and principles of design
  • Only book on market endorsed by the world's leading manufacturer of cut-crystal beads
