Marcia DeCoster - the popular beading teacher and blogger with an international following - brings a sense of playfulness, sophistication and dynamism to jewellery by exploring the art of motion. Many of her 24 projects spin or slide; others are as simple as a drop that swings from a chain. She uses a variety of stitches to weave the designs, including peyote stitch, netting, cubic right angle weave and chevron stitch among others. A fundamentals section provides diagrams and step-by-step instructions for each of the stitches used. Get into the swing of beading with Marcia by putting your jewellery in motion!
