The author shares her passion for beads, bringing together a stunning range of designs based on classic stitches. Her techniques are clearly illustrated with dazzling photographs and clear, detailed diagrams. Using colour and texture to enhance and embellish the designs, she shows how to vary basic project ideas, and how to create shimmering rainbow baskets, crocheted ropes, woven necklaces, spiral bracelets and more. Patterns contrast and swirl around transparent and opaque beads, in subtle and bold harmony, and textures twist in and around to create fascinating surfaces - rich and tempting.

The eighteen projects range from simple to more elaborate, offering wonderful creative possibilities. This is a book to excite and delight anyone interested in beads and all those who would like to learn about beadworking techniques.
