This volume brings together some of the best of Julia Pretl's bead collections. In this compilation of the author’s previous three books, Beaded Collars, Bead Knitted Bags, and Little Bead Boxes, readers learn the author’s original methods for beading miniature vessels, knit purses, and classic neck pieces. Pretl, an innovator of form and technique, offers instruction for creating four-, five-, and six-sided rectangular, square, and stacked miniature boxes; vintage-style bead-knitted handbags; and intricate neckpieces, inspired by the dramatic jewelry worn by the ancient Egyptians. Each of the projects contains a materials list and instructions presented both in written and charted form. With detailed instruction and sequenced illustrations, the author provides clear, step-by-step guidance.
