The allure of beads in all their shapes and sizes has captivated and intrigued people for centuries. From wooden and clay beads to Venetian glass, lampworked, gilded, crystal, and precious stone beads, the inspiring variety available to today's crafter presents exciting possibilities.

The twenty-five step-by-step projects in this book offer some of the best techniques available for all sorts of beaded fabric embellishments. Try beading in the round to create bead-wrapped perfume bottles and tassels, pin-and-wire beading to make beautiful decorative flowers, or sewn beading to ornament fashions and fabrics of every sort. A special section of pattern templates guarantees sparkling results no matter what your skill level.
