Overview

Beading with Cabochons: Simple Techniques for Beautiful Jewelry by Jamie Cloud Eakin


With this gloriously photographed and illustrated manual at hand, beaders can create awe-inspiring jewelry. It's the only current, comprehensive guide to working with cabochons--a flat piece of rock or mineral--and it covers all the basics, along with a range of new creative techniques and hot trends. Find out which tools and materials to use, which beads work best, and how to wrap them round the stones. Craft turned, pointed, twisted, brick stitch, ruffled, or scalloped edges, or add decorative fringe. For something dramatic, combine more than one cabochon in a single piece. Or, instead of natural stone, use dichroic glass or other found objects. Make a glittering brooch, funky bracelets, a wearable art necklace, and other showstoppers.

This book is the most detailed and easy to understand book out there regarding cabochons. Jamie is explicit when it comes to explaining techniques and there is definately plenty of beaded eye candy to spark your creativity. Easy to read - well formatted and beautiful pictures make this a must have for any seed beader interested in adding large stones to their jewelry making collection.

Love it! This book was exactly what I wanted. It really demystified beaded jewelry for me. I bead embroider clothing and make jewelry, now with this book I can combine both skills and expand my repertoire.
