Summary

Summary

Work wool magic by rolling it into hard balls, or adding metallic fiber. Coil polymer clay for a real impact. You'll find that the simplest techniques yield incredibly lovely, one of a kind "jewels." "Public libraries...will find this potpourri of projects a distinctive addition to crafts collections."-- Library Journal.

Library Journal Review

Five bead artists have collaborated on this guide to making contemporary-style beads. The most unusual are the rolled and shaped felt beads made from merino wool by Jorie Johnson. Ann Marie Kennedy has several projects for paper beads, Irene Semanchuk Dean shows how to make polymer clay beads, Joanna Goldberg has projects for lovely silver beads, and Kimberly Adams demonstrates lamp-worked glass beads. Public libraries needing more beading material will find this potpourri of projects a distinctive addition to crafts collections. (c) Copyright 2010.
