Designer Beadwork: Beaded Crochet Designs
It's the newest thing in crafting, a hot mix of crochet and beadwork. These more than 50 projects for necklaces, earrings, and bracelets are all marvelously easy to make, using only the most basic stitches. Surround cabochons with a netting of beaded crochet to form the Opal or Stone Pendant Necklaces. The Pearl Frenzy necklace features freshwater pearls threaded into a chain-stitched design. For a matching set of jewels, try the Pretty in Pink or Snake ensembles. Each project includes color graphs and diagrams, and there's plenty of information on stringing techniques, selecting the best fibers, combining different sizes and types of beads, and troubleshooting. A Selection of the Crafters Choice Book Club.
