Seed beads are basic, essential materials in a beader's stash, and this handbook gives beginning crafters a full course in how to work with them for great results. Seed beads come in a plethora of colors and materials and can be worked in an endless variety of stitches, which are taught in chapters that progress from introductory to more challenging. The more than 20 projects teach and then combine techniques in projects guaranteed to impress--from a simple beaded tin to a ladder ring to a tubular peyote-stitch rope of beaded beads. There is also a section on shopping for beads and equipment that will make new initiates comfortable as they explore the potentials of beading with seed beads. Filled with information and inspiration, this clear guide is a catalog of colorful and creative possibility.
