Using the dangle method of construction, string a dazzling array of seed, bugle, crystal, and other beads and transform them into gorgeous items for yourself or to give as unique gifts. Spectacular color photographs offer inspiration to the crafter and showcase more than a dozen projects, including exquisitely beaded lampshades, versatile tassels, Christmas decorations, display shelves, and beaded scarves and evening bags. Small-scale objects such as brooches, bookmarks, and hair combs, are ideal for novices. Instructions, guidance on materials, and helpful tips for beginners will ensure success, while information on pattern design and development will enable you to express your own creativity.
