Are you a new beader seeking solid beading foundations? Or are you an experienced beadworker wanting to refine your skills? "Mastering Beadwork" is your ultimate resource for beading knowledge - it's a project book plus reference tool wrapped up in one. Carol Cypher presents easy-to-understand instructions with informative sidebars to help anyone master beading techniques. Each of the 13 techniques are explained in detail, then further explored with projects to enhance the beader's skills and confidence. The 63 projects included here - ranging from bracelets, necklaces, rings, and earrings to findings, closures, beaded beads, and other beaded objects - teach a single project or technique but are arranged to build skills at any level. "Mastering Beadwork" is a classroom in a book, an all-in-one reference guide, and a compendium of beading techniques. It will supplement what you've already learned in beading classes, set you on the first steps to beading confidence, and infuse your work with inspiration.
