Here is a great bead instruction soft cover book titled... Beautiful Beads/How to Create Beautiful, Original Gifts and Jewelry for Every Occasion by Alexandra Kidd.
This soft cover book is in used but good condition with some wear to the front and back covers from reading, use and re-shelving. INSIDE the pages are at least 98% free of any marks, stains or writing.
With more than 50 projects await your creative touch! How-tos and inspirational ideas feature basic and advanced techniques with glass, wood, plastic, crystal, and polymer clay beads. Instructions for jewelry, accessories, home decor accents, and more!
This is a book for people who love beads so much, they want to use them on everything! The range of projects include jewelry made from a variety of techniques: stringing, knotting, connecting beads with wire work to other beads and to other jewelry findings such as spacer bars. The styles of necklaces and earrings are quite varied and include multi-stranded chokers, a tasseled necklace, dangly charm-style jewelry, and beaded rosette earrings and necklace.
There is a beaded watchband, woven bead bracelet, pendant, and belt. There's an assortment of items decorated with sewn-on beads, including a hat, camisole, pincushion, pillow, and vest.
The instructions are quite thorough and include easy-to-see drawings. Some previous experience with jewelry-making or sewing would be helpful, however.
