Product description

With this gloriously photographed and illustrated manual at hand, beaders can create awe-inspiring jewelry. It's the only current, comprehensive guide to working with cabochons--a flat piece of rock or mineral--and it covers all the basics, along with a range of new creative techniques and hot trends. Find out which tools and materials to use, which beads work best, and how to wrap them round the stones. Craft turned, pointed, twisted, brick stitch, ruffled, or scalloped edges, or add decorative fringe. For something dramatic, combine more than one cabochon in a single piece. Or, instead of natural stone, use dichroic glass or other found objects. Make a glittering brooch, funky bracelets, a wearable art necklace, and other showstoppers.

Review quote

Praise for Jamie Cloud Eakin's "Beading with Cabochons" "The designs are all beautiful and have a dramatic neo-Victorian look. Highly recommended." - Library Journal ""Beading With Cabochons" by Jamie Cloud Eakin is the first book (on bead embroidery) I read, and it's my favorite guide to beading around flat-backed stones for several reasons. One, she takes you through every step of the beading process, from gluing down the stone to attaching the backing, in detail. Even nervous newcomers will feel confident. Two, she covers a number of edging and attachment techniques to take a reader from beginner to intermediate. And three, she goes beyond the projects in her book and discusses designing your own -- essential for the bead embroidery artist! Note: Her technique for creating beaded bezels is different from the other technique I've seen, which is to create bezels out of circular peyote stitch. You may find it worthwhile to learn both ways!" - Saturday Sequins blog, March 2012
