The new beadwork
Beadwork, the last of the traditional crafts to be discovered by fine artists, has undergone a revolution in the past two decades. Creative men and women, interested in the medium's unique qualities of color, light reflection, refraction, and texture, are exploring its rich possibilities for delicate detail and spectacular pattern. Dozens of full-color photos taken especially for this book illustrate clothing, wall hangings, jewelry, game boards, vessels, and more.
