Presented in a step-by-step format with techniques to suit all levels, instructions and colour photographs, this volume offers ideas to create original and exquisite bead jewellery, accessories and decorations. The book brings together an evocative history, a manual of techniques, and projects using a crafting skill that has been used in many cultures. After an introduction providing a historical overview and background, the book opens with a section covering about materials, equipment and skills. The techniques taught include how to make beads, how to use a bead loom and how to apply and use the jewellery fixings. In the following project sections, classic beadwork is used to create jewellery and personal accessories as well as covers, fringing, borders and hangings. The projects cover a wide variety of traditional and contemporary styles, from a Victorian-look brooch to an art deco beaded screen and a beaded chandelier.
