You've noticed them at stores, practically begging you to take handfuls home: shiny seed beads, tubular bugles, or fancy-shaped drops, ovals and flowers - go right ahead... Arranged in a question-and-answer format, it covers different types of beads, tools and materials, techniques for 18 easy projects (each building on the one before), and an additional 14 with a little more challenge. Try gluing, stringing on wire and on jewellery components, incorporating knotting, using pressure crimps, stitching, to make ornaments, napkin rings, pins, pendants, beaded needlepoint, barrettes, bookmarks, a wrapped candleholder and other great items.
