Overview


Add an exquisite touch to your work!

A sequel to the best-selling book, The Beaded Edge, this guide teaches beaders and crocheteres alike how to add personal touches to a wide variety of fabric projects using gorgeous edges and embellishments. The Beaded Edge 2 explores Traditional Turkish oya, the delicate edgings for fabric--created using thread, knots, and beads. Designer Midori Nishida was fascinated by these edgings, and created a series of them based on traditional motifs of flowers, fruit, leaves and vines, and geometric designs such as scallops or stars.

Step-by-step instructions for 18 edgings comprise the book, along with inspirational photos showing their use as trims for clothing, accessories, and home furnishing: everything from dresses, collars, pockets, cuffs, and hems; handbags, scarves, hats, and jewelry; and pillows, tablecloths, desk accessories, and kitchen linens. A section also discusses the history and traditions of Turkish oya.

The Beaded Edge 2 combines rich Turkish traditions with diverse and captivating designs that you'll be proud to place on your pillow or around your wrist.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Nishida's (The Beaded Edge) delicate beaded edges and embellishments are striking, and this collection, which includes directions, project ideas, and a brief history of Turkish embroidery, will teach experienced crocheters how to create them. Most of the designs use perle cotton or laceweight yarn along with seed beads and a small crochet hook, and Nishida provides full bead-stringing information as well as crochet diagrams. Two of the designs include full-color, step-by-step directions—very helpful for beginners or for crocheters who have never used beads in their creations. VERDICT The creations are beautiful, but this book suffers slightly from an issue that plagues many craft books translated from Japanese: Americans are used to more explicit directions. Following along may take more concentration than usual, but the results are worth the effort.

    Great book

    Beautiful exciting borders. Because I think it was translated sometimes the text is a bit tricky. Stick with it, your patience will be rewarded.
