Beads on cross-stitched treasures; dripping from tassels, braids, and fringes; and elegantly woven with or without a loom: these patterns and pages present so many different ways to enjoy the lovely art of beading. Here are the very best examples of this attractive and sophisticated craft, from jewelry to home accessories. Find out how to weave a Southwest Tube Necklace with turquoise drops and bugle beads, and a Loomed Mandarin Lamp Shade crafted from 6 beaded panels. Make an elegant silvery Opera Purse lined with Japanese kimono silk, a richly textured Antique Borders sampler, and painted and distressed wooden tassel molds. Beaders will find everything they need to create one-of-a-kind designs.
