Lark Books, 2008 - Crafts & Hobbies - 127 pages
Pearls have long stood for classic beauty and elegance, and this collection of 30 exquisite projects, the latest in the bestselling Beading with series, continues that time-honored tradition. It features sophisticated and stylish designs by a pool of talented artists, most using simple techniques suitable for beginners. The pieces range from vintage and sentimental to hip, modern, and edgy: the showstopping Bohemia ring features three burgundy pearls set in silver wire, accented with Swarovski crystals. Nefertiti earrings--fit for a queen--highlight clusters of tiny white rice pearls on wrapped bead loops. A shimmering three-strand necklace includes polished citrines, faceted glass beads, and off-white pearls. Every page is brimming with high-end style!
