Highly recommended by Julia, Mastering Beadwork: : A Comprehensive Guide to Off-Loom Techniques is an out-of-print book that is an invaluable bible for all beaders.
A must-have for beaders of all skill levels, this is a comprehensive guide for a huge range of beading techniques and includes beautiful colour photographs for 63 different beading projects to try out each of the techniques the book teaches.
Are you a new beader seeking solid beading foundations? Or are you an experienced beadworker wanting to refine your skills? Mastering Beadwork is your ultimate resource for beading knowledge-it's a project book plus reference tool wrapped up in one.
Based on years of teaching experience, Carol Cypher presents easy-to-understand instructions with informative sidebars to help anyone master beading techniques. Each of the 13 techniques are explained in detail, then further explored with projects to enhance the beader's skills and confidence. The 63 projects included here-ranging from bracelets, necklaces, rings, and earrings to findings, closures, beaded beads, and other beaded objects-teach a single project or technique but are arranged to build skills at any level. You'll also find suggestions for personalizing and expanding on each project or pattern.
Learn all the basic beading stitches-from peyote, spiral, vertical and horizontal netting, bead crochet, right-angle weave, triangle weave, daisy chain, ladder stitch, ndebele, brick stitch, African helix, and more.
Mastering Beadwork is a classroom in a book, an all-in-one reference guide, and a compendium of beading techniques. It will supplement what you've already learned in beading classes, set you on the first steps to beading confidence, and infuse your work with inspiration.
