Experiment with a range of materials, from sumptuous ribbon and eyelash yarns to silver and gold wire, and find out how to decorate your finished piece with beads, crystals, ribbons, feathers, embroidery, and silk flowers.

Review quote

Chapter one covers all the basics. It covers yarn, beads, findings, tools and equipment. The step by step instructions on the basic stitches and techniques are excellent. The instructions are accompanied by clear diagrams and photographs. This chapter takes you through everything that you need to know right up to finishing your article. The following chapters cover the projects. Once again the instructions are excellent with very good photographs of the finished articles.-Lesley Nutbeam (Bead Society of Great Britain)
