In Easy Crystal Stitching, Sophisticated Jewelry, Nikia Angel uses several basic designs to create complex jewelry. Beaders stitch individual elements, such as circles, squares, or triangles that are not hard to make or require much time, and use them as building blocks to construct intricate and sophisticated-looking finished jewelry. Beaders will also learn how to stitch a bezel for a rivoli, create a bail for pendants, make a spiral rope, and stitch a toggle clasp. Stitching these circles, squares, and triangles together into necklaces, bracelets, earrings, and rings transforms small components into stunning showstoppers!

Loved this book! And amazingly, the very 1st project is actually a building block for all the others, though each looks totally different. It really encourages people to think outside the box & use their imagination.
This book is a WOW! Best bead book in many,many years. Even a beginner could do these designs and the results are so very professional looking. The individual components allow for great creativity. I've had an absolute blast with this book.
