Making Bead Jewelry and Decorative Accessories

Making Bead Jewelry and Decorative Accessories

by Virginia Nathanson




Fashioned from beads, pearls, and metallic yarns, make-it-yourself jewelry and home accessories are ideal for gift-giving and adding sparkle to wearing apparel and domestic settings. This amply illustrated, carefully written guide by a veteran crafter tells how to create a dazzling array of these handmade articles — from gleaming bracelets, belts, and vests that look expensive (but aren't) to miniature animals, lamp shades, and a cornucopia of beaded vegetables.
Patterns and drawings for 75 easy-to-make costume accessories and decorative objects include such quickie projects as key chains, earrings, cuff links, and eyeglass cases. For the more ambitious, there are directions for creating glistening collars, purses, ties, and chokers, while Christmas candles and assorted ornaments help "deck the halls."
