discover how to craft beautiful handmade jewellery using a variety of beads - from seed beads to glass beads, pearl to semi-precious stones, including quartz, turquoise, lapis lazuli, amber, amethyst and coral.
It features all the essential techniques needed to transform beautiful beads and stones into stunning accessories.
In this work, get advice on choosing just the right number and size of stones to guarantee a harmoniously proportioned piece, and be inspired to create your own unique combinations, learning how to pick colours that compliment each other, which order to string them, and how to combine them with fastenings, knots, spacer beads, sterling silver crimp beads, or wire twists.
Packed with over 100 examples from international bead artists, each project is deconstructed so readers can see the exact type and quantity of bead that goes into it, and recreate it for themselves.
