Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0806904003, Hardcover)Employing seed and bugle beads in two different basic techniques--needleweaving and card stitching--Beadweaving presents 50 beautiful projects, each with full step-by-step instructions and patterns. The needleweaving method is worked in counted rows from a gridded pattern, resulting in interesting geometric-based designs. In card stitching, the beads are sewn directly onto a lightweight cardboard or manila folder; because a geometric grid is not necessary, the designs can be more freeform and curvilinear. Ranging from contemporary to traditional, the attractive projects include necklaces, pins, earrings, belts, barrettes, and small purses, all accompanied by color photos of the finished pieces.
