Revamped, expanded, and still meticulously thorough, this reference is an essential tool for both experienced and new beadworkers. The original authors, both among the craft's most respected beaders, have revisited and revised the previous edition to bring it up to date with today's bead world. New products, such as stringing materials and synthetic waxes, are discussed, along with time-saving tricks and tips for every aspect of beading. Sections about off-loom stitches, stringing, finishing techniques such as picot edging and branched fringe, and embroidering, knitting, and crocheting with beads all feature updated instructions along with a new section on semiprecious stones. Full of definitions and illustrations, the book's step-by-step instructions, reference charts, and project photos inform and inspire.
