Project: Necklaces, published by Kalmbach Publishing, has a wonderful array of 30 necklaces for beginners and intermediate beaders. All the projects can be found in previous issues of Bead & Button magazine, and are all fully-tested winners.
The introduction has all the info you'll need on tools and materials, the techniques that you'll use, and how to fit a necklace properly. This fitting section is the best part of the book besides the projects with very useful tips. The rest of the book falls into four sections: stringing, single stitch pieces, combined techniques, and wirework.
|My favorite piece is by Stephanie Eddy|
