Beaders everywhere?from rank beginners to top-level artists?are discovering the extraordinary creative potential and pleasure of a seemingly simple craft: making unique, one-of-a-kind beads from existing beads themselves. This lushly illustrated guide offers them a blast of inspiration, with 40 fabulous designs from some of today’s finest beadwork artists. Ranging from understated to pure dazzling glam, these projects showcase a range of innovative techniques. Among the standouts: a peyote-stitched Tetrahedron Beaded Bead that can be produced in varying sizes; a Peek-A-Boo Bead, using steel nuts from the hardware store; and a cylinder-shaped Piñata Bead, decorated with smaller beads resembling tiny, colorful party balloons.
