Jean Power - All books by this author

The craft of beading has taken on new life in recent years. Today’s beaders are combining the traditional stitches of Native American, African, and European origin with imaginative new techniques to create stunning statement pieces that are youthful, modern, and meant to be seen! In Small Beads Big Jewelry, professional jewelry designer Jean Power offers instructions for 30 funky, chunky pieces that will stand out from the crowd. Both new and more advanced beaders will enjoy this impressive range of projects, each flagged according to skill level, and organized by time—from earrings and rings that can be completed in under an hour, to complex geometric pieces that take five hours or more. They’ll also find:
  • An overview of the necessary tools and the various bead types
  • A chapter of valuable advice and insight from professional beaders
  • Instructions for essential stitches, including ladder, brick, herringbone, and peyote
  • 30 step-by-step projects for rings, necklaces, pendants, hair ornaments, and more
Projects include alternate colorways and instructions for adapting designs to create a range of pieces. With more than 200 beautiful full-color illustrations and easy-to-follow diagrams, Small Beads Big Jewelry will be the must-have craft guide for 2014!
