Overview


A terrific crafting pastime to practice alone or in groups, beading is not only a pleasant hobby, it's also a fun way to earn some extra money. In this handy, abundantly illustrated guide, readers will find scores of delightful project ideas: handbags, earrings, trinket boxes, mosaic pictures, brooches, miniature furniture, dress decorations, and window shade pulls, to name only a few.
While the author's examples may appeal to many adult crafters, the simple instructions make it easy for even grade-schoolers to create attractive items such as necklaces, rope bracelets (currently very popular), greeting cards, belts, and rings. Additional chapters list interesting new ways to use beads in other crafts, such as embroidery, crochet work, and weaving. A final chapter identifies a variety of bead types (cork, acorn, macaroni, rose petal, spool, and more). Simple directions and easy-to-master techniques make this a book that will be treasured by hobbyists and serious crafters alike.
