It's a well-known fact that beads have been an integral part of societies for millennia. But did you know that certain beadweaving stitches have existed since the Egyptians? All of the classic stitches for the craft are explained here: peyote, brick, square, right-angle weave, African helix, netting, and chevron chain. Illustrations and detailed explanations make each one astonishingly simple to master. Go beyond the traditional to create three-dimensional objects--bowls, baskets, and figures--in addition to jewelry and accessories. See how to attach fringe, work the outside edge, and add spacer beads. Apply the techniques to 20 projects, ranging from simple brick-stitch "Ear Rings" of Saturn, to a handsome peyote-weave basket, to a gorgeous Maui Evening Bag in gold, ivory, and teal. A gallery of 100 color photos displays some of the best work done by contemporary bead artists, from a funky, richly colored cuffed basket to a fabulously beautiful gilded cage. Packed with information and inspiration, it's sure to become the beadwork bible. 144 pages, 150 color illus., 250 b/w illus., 8 1/2 x 10. NEW IN PAPERBACK
