Overview

This is the first seed bead workbook to supply large, clear, graphic illustrations plus instructions on how to thread many popular jewelry patterns. Written with beaders of all ages in mind, this book provides a framework for creating attractive and colorful rings, bracelets, napkin holders, necklaces and earrings. The patterns come from cultures throughout the world, many of which were collected by the author during her travels. The book is a must for the beginning and intermediate seed bead worker, and several of the patterns may be taught to children as young as 7 years old. It is also a great "glossary" of pattern ideas that experienced bead addicts can use in their own designs.

The fun begins with simple chains and a beaded ball and loop clasp that can be put on any pattern. Each page has a graphic pattern large enough to place beads on, and a clear illustration of how to thread the beads. A short set of specific instructions offers further guidance, along with several hints on how to vary the design to create unique pieces. The next patterns show how to create simple lacy bracelets and slender lace necklaces. Three patterns show simple, beautiful earrings. Finally, there are patterns for creating larger, elegant lace necklaces and chokers. Color photos of all jewelry patterns are provided. Patterns included are: Ball and Loop Clasp; Lace Loop Chains I & II; Lace Loop Necklace with Diamonds; Lace Diamond Pattern; Multi-Diamond Pattern; Medallion Pattern; Pretzel Loop Pattern; Flower Chains I & II; Hour Glass Loop Pattern; Pagoda Earrings; Dangling Diamond Earrings; Spider Web Earrings; Chain Link Necklace; Hula Hoop Necklace; Pennant Choker Necklace; Julia's Necklace;Empress Choker Necklace; Hanging Bead Necklace; Julia's Loopy Necklace; and Valentine Necklace. This is a wonderful new book for all ages and skill levels!

    Well written with clear instructions

    Many beautiful and vintage looking patterns, as well as some funkier more modern looking necklaces, with clear directions and a full color photo of every design. I can see that many of these necklaces would look vastly different if done in different colors. There's something for everyone, from the bride to the goth, here. Well written instructions make this a good buy for the beginner or the experienced beader looking to expand their jewelry repertoire. --- RAJ--- mother, teacher, and artist

    Clear & Concise! Beginners, Advanced, and Everyone Else!

    As someone who has problems with lace and netted stitches, this book is very nicely arranged, and easy to follow. The designs are simple, and give th reader plenty of information and room to expand and modify the patterns to make their own unique creations. An excellent resource!

    More a pamphlet than a book

    Not terrible, and has some useful variations on simple netting. However, i would consider it more for ages 7 to 10. I've been spoiled by all the eye candy in other beading books. Then again, it does live up to the main title -- these are simple and thoroughly explained.
