Great Beaded Gifts
From elegant jewelry to decorative home accessories, these 40 beaded gifts are fun to make and a pleasure to give. The awe-inspiring selection of easy and intermediate projects includes necklaces and bracelets, hatbands and purses, mirrors and lampshades. General instructions, with advice on all the necessary tools and techniques (such as basic stringing and adding clasps), appear right up front. Start with the simple Changeable Bead Necklace, which uses a dazzling variety of beads in random colors and sizes. A cool and funky Wavy Barrette goes wonderfully with now-popular vintage clothing. Or make a Beach Glass Hanger, Satin Evening Bag, tassels, ornaments, and much more.
