Synopsis

Beaded Embellishment Techniques and Designs for Embroidering on Cloth by Amy C. Clarke, Robin Atkins

Rich on history and technique, this definitive work by two leading beadworkers offers the first comprehensive look at the vast opportunities for self-expression with bead embroidery. Fabrics of all kinds - woven, non-woven, patterned, and plain, come together with beads of all kinds - seed, bugle, art, and novelty. The result is 10 stunning projects that both instruct and inspire. Four basic foundation stitches and their variations are illustrated in careful detail, and useful tricks of the trade abound for developing pattern and image. A colorful gallery of work by contemporary bead artists offers numerous ideas to inspire your own creations.
