From stunning fabric jewellery to finely crafted mini-purses, this richly illustrated volume takes fashion art to a new level. "Wagashi" features patterns for 20 handcrafted projects - from necklaces, bracelets and earrings to decorative belts and even iPod covers - each an exquisite accessory and a tiny work of art in its own right. Full instructions are provided for several unusual craft techniques including Japanese knotwork, Delica beading, and fabric origami, each with full-colour drawings and step-by-step directions. These projects are accompanied by full-color photographs evocative of contemporary Japanese style, and every chapter opens with an original watercolor by the author, as well as text providing reflections on Japanese life and art. It is a brilliant craft gift book to give or to keep!
