On chokers and chains, ribbons and ropes, jazzing up a basket, adding texture everywhere: you can simply never have too many beads! The selection is always expanding, with the growing popularity of beaded clothing, lampshades, belts, pillows, and more. And, off-loom beadweaving produces the most beautiful and complex resultswhile still using easy-to-follow techniques. A leader in the field shares her infectious enthusiasm for the art, starting with the basics and moving on to more challenging projects. Decorate purchased beads to personalize them, if you'd like, and then begin working with chevron chain; crochet; herringbone and peyote stitches; and spiral rope. Weave a three-bead spiral bracelet, twisted ribbon Ndebele necklace, gemstone rope, napkin rings, and more. Plus: the secret to developing your own creative variations on each theme!
