Bead Style: Fabulous Chunky Jewelry is an exuberant collection of bracelets, necklaces, and rings made in the chunky style using beads of every description. Wildly popular, the chunky look exudes high and funky style when shapely beads in gorgeous colors are combined to create multi-strand necklaces in robin's egg blue, pale salmon, milky pink, and raspberry, bracelets loaded with plump faceted crystals in pomegranate red, burnt orange, and lime green, and dazzling cocktail rings in chunky quartz in gemstone colors.

Author Genevieve A. Sterbenz brings her talent, fashion sense, and crafting savvy to each gorgeous design so that the reader can make all 25 original pieces in "The Collection." Providing inspiration and practical information, Bead Style also features a sumptuous section, "Beading Basics" where all the fundamentals of making all the pieces in "The Collection" are illustrated and explained in clear, concise, easy-to-follow directions and close-up photographs that reveal each technical detail in the jewelry-making process. Another section, "Sources and Resources" provides an up-to-date annotated list of places to buy the very best in jewelry-making materials and supplies. The work ends with a comprehensive index.

Spiral bound book for well-photographed instructions on how to make the inspirational designs. This book includes some ring designs. Suitable for beginners and perhaps the younger set. Read full review
