Art Bead Jewelry: Seasons in Glass
As glass beads grow in popularity, so does the need to find ways to use them in jewelry designs. Art Bead Jewelry: Seasons in Glass is perfect for anyone who loves lampworked beads but doesn't know how to incorporate them into interesting and unique jewelry designs. Rather than concentrate on making the beads themselves, author Karen Leonardo focuses on making jewelry from finished lampwork beads (which are readily available online, in bead shops, and at shows). More than two dozen pieces from noted jewelry designers are included, with the projects ranging from easy to intermediate/advanced. Featuring full-color, photographic, step-by-step directions for each project, the book explains in plain English how to make seasonally inspired necklaces with such techniques as working wire, stringing, attaching a toggle, jump ringing, using silver clay, and seed bead basics. A gallery of gorgeous examples offers inspiration to budding and advanced beaders.
