Popular beader Jamie Cloud Eakin uses bugle beads to make her fun, fantastic pieces, and she’s showing other crafters how to do it, too!
The techniques — from weaving into beadwork to using stop beads — are wonderfully simple, and explained in an easy-to-follow basics section.
Each of the 30 beautiful projects fits into one of six thematic colour families, and the gorgeous creations include a Victorian Choker, colourful Parallel Weave Bracelet, and black-and-white Pouch with Pizzazz.
