Product Description


"Stamping is an accessible craft with a low barrier for entry--crafters only need a medium to carve, a linoleum cutter or craft knife, ink, and something on which to stamp . . . The variety of artists ensures a reasonably diverse range of styles . . . Stamping isn't just for scrapbookers, and this title will open crafters' eyes to the potential for stamping fabric, wood, and even porcelain." --"Library Journal" "Fabulous step-by-step photos and instructions for sophisticated designs." --"Bead Design Studio" "The rising popularity of soutache has jewelry makers hungry for instructions on how to use this fabulous braid in elegant designs. Anneta presents step-by-step instructions to create 30 beautiful projects, using a variety of techniques, beads, and stones. She provides a 24-page 'Techniques' section for the projects in this book, and then complements her instructions with excellent photographs throughout. This is a beautiful book full of gorgeous projects!" --"Bead & Button" "Soutache is a type of braid historically used as a luxurious decorative trim--and in the right hands it can also be used to create lightweight, elegant jewelry designs. "Soutache: 30 Gorgeous Bead Embroidery Designs" by Anneta Valious is the first English-language book to describe this technique. Step-by-step directions and almost 500 instructional photos teach you how to combine stitching and beading methods to create unique bead-and-fiber masterpieces." --"BEADWORK"

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Gorgeous book with loads of inspiring pictures and techniques. You just want to make them all ! Very clear instructions and close up photos so they don't seem quite as daunting as they first look, and if you don't feel up to tackling the projects it is a lovely book to just browse through. If you like sewing and your like jewellery making this is the book for you.
