For creative crafters, "Beading from Nature" is like two books in one! First, it offers a comprehensive guide to the essential tools and techniques for designing and making jewelry. That alone would make this a must-have volume. But it also provides 25 sophisticated designs, all featuring natural stones and fascinating found objects. There's a full inventory of beads on the market today, and in-depth advice on designing a personalized piece--how to choose the materials and what elements (like texture, color, weight, and balance) to consider. Wires, chains, knotting, attaching pendants, and creating hanging items all receive close attention. The unique projects include an Amber Chip Bracelet, Onyx Graduated Shell and Ethnic Silver Amulet Pendant, and a Driftwood Necklace.
