Description

Combining traditional techniques with modern materials, and showcasing a wide variety of bead types, this book presents 18 beautiful jewelry projects incorporating motifs drawn from nature, such as flora and fauna, artistic designs, and geometric forms. With its truly spectacular illustrations, this is a feast of inspiration for beaders and crafters.

About the Author
Laura McCabe, a self-taught bead weaver, takes basic peyote-stitch and spiral-rope bead necklaces and earrings and embellishes them with even more beads fashioned into small, nature-inspired attachments. Conventional jewelry pieces become encrusted with sparkly flowers and leaves. Somewhat startling are dangling cabochons made from doll's eyes. Beaders who have mastered basic bead weaving and are looking for more adventurous projects will want this.
