Multi-hole shaped beads continue to explode in availability and popularity. Beaders are looking for new ways to use the popular multi-hole shaped beads in unique, wearable jewelry. Exquisite Stitching with Multi-Hole Beads by Renee Kovnesky offers 25 projects for beautiful and delicate necklaces, bracelets, earrings, and pendants.
The book opens with an introduction to materials, beads, and techniques that allows beaders with just a little bit of experience to get started quickly. Plenty of the author's own step-by-step illustrations lead stitchers through each pattern.
The 25 projects are organized into 5 chapters by bead shape: rectangular, round, square, triangle, and miscellaneous other shapes. In addition to multi-hole shaped beads, the projects use bead stitchers' other favorite materials: seed beads, crystals, pearls, fire-polished beads, and more.
The lacy, lovely projects are fast and easy ideal for gifts or teaching in classes. Some projects incorporate on-trend components like chain and tassels. Many projects include variations, offering readers plenty of options for changing the look or style of the finished piece.
