Beadwork Creates Earrings: 30 Designs

Edited by Jean Campbell

      Here is another new addition to the popular "Beadwork Creates" series, all about that favorite fashion accessory, the earring. These make up far faster than necklaces and bracelets and are so much fun. Try out some new beading techniques, and revisit old favorites as well as filling up your jewelry box with a pair for each outfit.

      This is perhaps the most accessible of all the books in the series, and comes with some useful diagrams at the back for anybody unfamiliar with the stitches. Beadwork tyros would be better off buying a book with "beginner" in the title, but if you have made a few pieces before, (kits perhaps), you won't find this to be rocket science. Some of America's top beadwork artists have come together to create this book and here are a large range of differing styles from classy to funky, and from original to twists on old ideas. Use up old beads, incorporate some unusual items and make a little look like a lot. I had a lot of fun and so will you - a very versatile book.
