This volume provides complete, step-by-step instructions for eight contemporary projects. Each is described in detail, with full-color photographs outlining each phase of construction. Information includes the selection of materials and required supplies. Close-up photos show how each step is accomplished, thus helping the reader to develop skills necessary to produce other items similar to these. Because the various beadwork techniques for these projects has been covered in my earlier work, as well as in many others, this version concentrates on the construction methods and materials that i use today, along with many tips and techniques that i have learned or developed and found successful over the years. It is my hope that the information presented here will inspire you to create many beautiful objects and give you hours of pleasure while pursuing the craft of beadwork.
