Ancient Worlds, Modern Beads brings the themes of ancient Rome, Greece and Egypt completely up to date for the modern beadweaver, combining the styles of genuine artefacts and the essence of ancient art with tiny seed beads. Ten designs from each region showcase the colours, patterns, and styles easily recognised in the precious artefacts displayed in the world's museums. Each project is directly inspired by these classical cultures-from mythology and daily life, to the materials used by ancient artisans. As one of the most popular mediums of the arts and crafts movement, beadweaving has a broad appeal with crafters and designers. Mortira Natasha vanPelt provides both new and experienced beaders with a gorgeous palette of techniques for stunning jewellery. Each chapter includes: - Introduction to the themes and styles of the region-along with examples of modern interpretations of the style - Ten projects ranging in skill level from easy to advanced, with step-by-step instructions
