Make beaded jewelry that looks great, and doesn't cost a fortune! All you need is this simple course in the basics of bead-stringing, along with inexpensive equipment such as beading thread and needles, trays, pliers, and Findings. Over 90 striking full-color photos display a wide range of the most gorgeous beads ever. Look for discarded strings in drawers, attics and thrift shops. You can transform these into a stunning array of necklaces, earrings, brooches, bracelets, hair ornaments, cuff links -- for daytime and evening! Dozens of styles are shown in full-color photos plus line drawings of each step. And what an array of possibilities...glass, ceramic, porcelain, wood, metal, semi-precious stone, pearl, horn, bone...and such a variety of styles: delicate Victorian rocaille, enchanting medieval European and Native American trade beads, Chinese enamel and cloisonne. The only limit is your imagination.
