The finest independent bead shops across the United States and Canada open their doors and their bead boxes in this showcase of materials and techniques to inspire beaders of all stripes. Forty projects mix insider tips with inventive arrangements, employing techniques from stringing and weaving to bead embroidery, wire wrapping, and soldering. Beginners will find an array of rewarding projects and advanced beaders will delight in the original ideas, such as a tic-tac-toe art deco piece, beaded lanterns, a fuzzy felted bead bracelet, a vintage-inspired picture pendant necklace, a spiritual talisman lariat and bracelet, and a unique mosaic bead tray. An instructive Beading 101 section, an illustrated techniques glossary, and a bead shop directory round out the book, making this collection a staple of creative beadwork.
