38. The Art & Elegance of Beadweaving

January 16, 2011

The Art & Elegance of Beadweaving

This is my first book on jewelry making techniques using beads.

Techniques introduced here are beaded beads (beads made of beads), chevron chain, crocheted ropes (bead crochet), herringbone stitch, peyote stitch and spiral rope.

The elegant jewelry projects are from contemporary bead jewelry designers and photos of their works are also featured.

I really like this book because it is easy to understand. I hope to learn all the techniques soon and try my hand in making the projects.


17. Designs for Bead Embroidery by Kenneth D. King

This book is a project book and features designs, including instructions to the basic techniques. Very good for designing haute couture beadworks.

Here is a sample page of some of the many combination possibilities in bead, crystals and sequins embroidery. (Warning: this is not a tambourwork book.)
