Colour and Design – the colours of the beads that you choose are almost as important as the size and styles.

Beading Tools and Materials – Everything you will ever need to make interesting, beautiful bead jewellery, explained in detail, from pliers and bead stringing wire, to clasps, toggles, jump rings, crimp ends and other jewellery findings.

Beading Techniques – Here you can learn many different jewellery-making techniques to give a professional touch to your bead jewellery designs, such as:

  • Bead Stringing
  • Using Wire
  • Making Findings and Rings
  • Bead Stitches
  • Bead Embroidery
  • Making Beads, Charms and Pendants
  • Using Polymer Clay

Bead Jewellery Designs – At the end of the book you will find 12 gorgeous step-by step-bead jewellery projects that you can make, including rings, bracelets, necklaces, brooches, earrings, and more!
