The newest installment in the top-selling Beadweaving Master Class series features popular jewelry and beading superstar Rachel Nelson-Smith.
Rachel approaches beading like a jazz musician approaches a song: she improvises freely and creatively, playing unexpected variations on basic themes. Here, Rachel reveals her techniques for combining right-angle weave, tubular peyote stitch, and exquisite embellishments.
Rachel's beautiful jazz-inspired pieces for beaders range from the Rondo necklace with repeated patterns to the Five Piece Band stackable ring. There are 23 inventive and fun jewelry projects in the book. “Riff It” sidebars offer suggestions for personalizing each design.
Rachel Nelson-Smith is a featured artist in the book Masters: Beadweaving. Other books in Lark Jewelry & Beading's Beadweaving Master Class series have been authored by Diane Fitzgerald, Marcia DeCoster, Laura McCabe, Sherry Serafini, and Maggie Meister.

Love this book! A HUGE variety of projects with some easy and some more challenging. They are all beautiful pieces and have great movement. There is also a lot of forgiveness to the patterns if you don't have exactly the right type of bead in some instances. I like to challenge myself with using what I have on hand rather than purchasing for every new project and this book was a superb opportunity to do so! I have made a number of projects out of this book now and can't wait to do more.
I really love the beadweaving master class series, so was thrilled when a new on came out. This is a very well put together book and would highly recommend you use it. Lots of good stuff in here.
