Beading: Projects, Techniques, Motifs
The enduring fascination for beads, their symbolism, and decorative potential and visual beauty has led to a great resurgence of interest in beading. This book explores the wealth of possibilities the craft offers, from the simplest trims to the creation of openwork beading and the use of beads to embellish embroidery, canvas work and knitting. The vast choice of available beads is described, and the different techniques, ranging from needle weaving to bead wrapping, fringing and pin and wire beading, are all fully explained and illustrated with step-by-step artwork.
