Learn how to create beautiful and layered jewelry projects with freeform beading! Explorations in Beadweaving starts with common beadweaving techniques and shows how to improvisationally combine them into stunning and unique creations. Author Kelly Angeley teaches peyote, herringbone, right-angle weave, and bead embroidery in a series of practical tutorials, then adds additional elements such as fringe, embellishment, metal components, found objects, and focal beads. Throughout the book, she guides the reader toward a more improvisational approach, from making different color choices to mixing and matching elements and techniques. Many projects will have a variation showing different colors or different elements. This book offers solid basic beading techniques and also gives you the tools to either make small but satisfying customizations or move right into improvisational methods. Get the confidence you need to create your own freeform designs!
