One Big Beautiful Bead: Simple Jewelry with Focal Beads
The sight of a show-stopping flame-worked or finely detailed metal bead will enchant any jewelry lover—and any of these 24 stunning designs would make the perfect setting to display that unique and beautiful bead. Select from five simple stringing and nineteen bead weaving projects, all using popular techniques such as the free-peyote stitch and Dutch spiral. A thorough basics section provides enough hand-holding for even the most intimidated beginner, and every project features an illustration of the entire piece plus an additional detail shot. For something easy, just attach a lovely flower-shaped bead to a leather cord for a chic necklace—or make shimmering faux lariats with oversized glass beads and elaborate multiwoven strands with lapis and a big silver slider.
