"Laura McCabe creates elaborate beaded embellishments which she combines into stunning jewelry. These graceful forms are also ideal for embellishing garments or fiber artworks. Her definitive guide to weaving and embroidering with beads is the third volume in the bestselling Beadweaving Master Class series. Combining traditional techniques with modern materials, and showcasing a wide variety of bead types, it offers 18 opulent pieces of jewelry incorporating motifs drawn from the natural world, such as flora and fauna, art nouveau designs, and geometric forms. With its truly spectacular illustrations, this is a feast of inspiration for crafters in all fiber media." Lark Books
I found this book to be very well written. The information provided is to the point, making access to that information easy. The projects are well described in the step by steps and include simple to understand diagrams. The graphics are gorgeous in this book too - just what you'd expect from Lark Books. The possibilities are endless using the ideas and techniques Laura shares with her readers - this book is full of inspiration! Included at the end is a gallery of works from very well known beadweavers including David Chatt, Marcie Stone, and Cynthia Rutledge.
