Making Designer Seed Bead, Stone and Crystal Jewellery [Paperback]

Tammy Powley

Available from these sellers.

Book Description

1 May 2006
Weaving tiny glass seed beads into jewellery is an ancient form of jewellery making dating back to early Native Americans and prehistoric African tribes. Today 'seed beading', also known as 'bead weaving' is extremely popular. By combining traditional seed bead techniques with a variety of other jewellery methods, jewellery makers can dramatically expand the type of seed bead jewellery they make. From learning established seed bead stitches to mastering a few simple wire and stringing steps, this book shows beginners through advanced bead weavers how to make seed bead jewellery with a designer flair. The author takes the reader on a tour of bead weaving, provides information about the different kinds of seed beads including sizes and types, and offers descriptions of the various supplies needed. She doesn't limit her discussion to only two types of stitches, but provides instructions for ten different stitches before delving into the how-to's for ten different breathtaking jewellery projects, including diamond coral and gaspeite earrings, a lacey emerald anklet and radiant zircon earrings.

This book has good basic instructions that are very useful but I didn't like the projects that much. There were pictures of great designs and maybe the idea was to teach the technique and then show how it could be expanded on. I personally would have liked to have instructions for some of the really pretty things.
