The Art & Elegance of Beadweaving,stitch variations are explored in ways not seen anywhere else.
In this book Carol Wilcox Wells has compiled a gorgeous collection of projects based on some favorite stitches, taking them to a whole new level. After a brief introduction to the materials and tools used for beadwork, readers can jump right into creating. There are four to five projects each for chevron chain, bead crochet, herringbone, peyote stitch, and spiral rope. The highlight of the book is an entire chapter on beaded beads with ten projects to try.
Each section is filled with beautiful photos of beadwork and jewelry designs featuring the relevant stitch, from some of beading’s greatest artists. Contributors include Marcia Decoster, Martha Forsyth, and NanC Meinhardt, plus many more.
If you’re looking for ways to spice up your beading repertoire, I highly recommend looking for The Art & Elegance of Beadweaving at your local library. It is full of gorgeous stitch inspirations!
