Overview

The Art of Beadwork is the definitive reference guide for everything beadwork, offering crafters a compendium of techniques for creating exquisite pieces of jewelry and accessories using beads, as well as instruction on a multitude of inspirational projects.

This lavishly illustrated book is a complete manual of techniques for on- and off-loom beadweaving and beadwork, from using cylinder beads to rocailles, and czech glass; knitting and crocheting with beads; and much more. The descriptions for each technique includes instruction, step-by-step photos, diagrams, and (in many cases) life-sized swatches for crafters to compare with their work in progress. The book includes a "Stitch Dictionary" as well as definitions of the myriad types of beads; their composition, sizes, shapes, finishes, and how to use them. Clear instruction and step-by-step photos guide the reader through the steps of jewelry construction. Throughout the book is a unique collection of projects by author Jane Lock and other artists from around the world, showcasing beading techniques while inspiring both aspiring and advanced crafters to test their skills.
