Stitch a beautiful jewelry collection that's reversible, interchangeable and convertible!
Discover how you can morph your jewelry designs from simple to exquisite with former Beadwork Designer of the Year Lisa Kan in her new book, Bead Metamorphosis.
In the pages of this fantastic book, you'll learn to create romantic bead-woven jewelry that is reversible, convertible, interchangeable or otherwise transformable. You decide whether to wear the Encanto necklace with one, two, or three focals, the Bella Fiore as a lariat, pendant, or wrap bracelet, or the Hanami as a brooch or pendant. All the while, you'll be building your skills as you create projects that include herringbone, netting, peyote stitch, right-angle weave, cubic right-angle weave, square stitch, St. Petersburg chain and their variations.
Plus, Lisa shows you how to combine the popular shaped 2-hole seed beads (SuperDuos, Rullas, bricks, triangles, lentils), along with round seed beads, pearls, crystals, firepolish beads, Swarovski rhinestones, hand-dyed Shibori silk ribbons, delicate chain, and other materials to create 16 projects - necklaces, bracelets, earrings, and brooches. Each project includes detailed step-by-step instructions and high-quality, clear diagrams with thread paths.
Bead Metamorphosis reveals Lisa's secrets for selecting bead colors, adding texture to jewelry designs, finding inspiration, and developing your own artistic voice too. Many projects also include variations illustrating different colorways so you can easily customize designs to suit your own taste. Once you've master a beaded component, you'll be able to modify it with different beads, colors, or embellishments to create something uniquely yours.
