9781579902001: The Art & Elegance of Beadweaving: New Jewelry Designs with Classic Stitches

On chokers, chains, ribbons, ropes, jazzing up a basket, adding texture everywhere: you can't have too many beads! The selection is ever-expanding, with beaded clothing, lampshades, belts, and pillows. And off-loom bead weaving is both simple and beautiful. A leader in the field shares her enthusiasm, going through the basics and on to more challenging projects. Decorate purchased beads to personalize them, if you'd like, and then weave a three-bead spiral bracelet, twisted ribbon Ndebele necklace, napkin rings, and more.

From the Back Cover :

On chokers and chains, ribbons and ropes, jazzing up a basket, adding texture and color everywhere: you can never have too many beads! Carol Wilcox Wells, who has years of beadweaving expertise, shows you basic and advanced techniques for chevron, peyote, spiral and crocheted rope, herringbone (Ndebele), and right angle weave stitches. Use them on dramatic jewelry, from a Graduated Triangle Drop Necklace to Putting Together Earrings. Then expand your creative boundaries when you try wonderful variations on these stitches.

From Booklist :

Some of the most elegant contemporary jewelry includes no precious gemstones, or even gold or silver. What artist-author Wells (Creative Beadweaving, 1996) conjures up in more than 30 bracelets, earrings, and necklaces is nothing short of breathtaking--all with a variety of colored seed beads, occasional larger beads, strong thread, and a flexible needle. The projects are built around five stitches--chevron chain, crocheted ropes, herringbone and peyote stitches, and spiral rope--all of which, the author assures us, can be readily mastered by beginners. Although 100 percent of the fundamentals, from graphic illustrations and charts to accompanying text and great color photographs, are all present and accounted for, it's still a better bet for novices to start with a kinder, gentler, and easier text. Galleries inserted liberally throughout the narrative capture the real meaning of aesthetic bead weaving. Barbara Jacobs
