Author Nealay Patel’s distinct sense of style and color appeals to crystal lovers looking for inspiration and new design ideas. Readers learn to use weaving, wire-working, and other creative techniques, like stitching with crystals and beading wire, to create ten truly unique jewelry sets. Beading wire is easy to find and use with little investment; it is also very forgiving and can be reshaped as many times as necessary. Clear step-by-step instructions and thorough, easy-to-follow photos and illustrations are included for each piece. Other chapters cover specific techniques such as crimping, creating a simple loop, working with thread, and opening and closing jump rings. These projects present a modern, Victorian-style look with a new twist.
