With simple tools, a few beads, and the expert instruction and projects offered here, it’s easy to break away from the ordinary and turn everyday items into works of useable art for your home. There is something for every room: Moroccan-inspired coasters and a rich sofa bolster cushion make a living room sparkle; flowered coffee spoons or a dramatic beaded summer table runner brighten up the kitchen; and a Baroque treasure box, beaded taffeta curtains, and flower tiebacks will add a touch of romance to any bedroom. And no experience is necessary! By applying simple techniques and commonly found beads—from hand-painted glass pearls to wooden, plastic, and metal varieties—anyone can make beautiful and functional accessories such as nightlight holders, elegant napkin rings, picture frames, and more.
