Learn how to create beautiful and layered jewelry projects with freeform beading! Explorations in Beadweaving starts with common beadweaving techniques and shows how to improvisationally combine them into stunning and unique creations. Author Kelly Angeley teaches peyote, herringbone, right-angle weave, and bead embroidery in a series of practical tutorials, then adds additional elements such as fringe, embellishment, metal components, found objects, and focal beads. Throughout the book, she guides the reader toward a more improvisational approach, from making different color choices to mixing and matching elements and techniques.
Many projects will have a variation showing different colors or different elements. This book offers solid basic beading techniques and also gives you the tools to either make small but satisfying customizations or move right into improvisational methods. Get the confidence you need to create your own freeform designs!
Kelly Angeley lives and works out of her home studio in Florence, OR. She sells her beadwork in galleries and boutiques along the west coast of the United States and has exhibited her work in national beadwork exhibitions.
Nothing to do with this particular book, but I DO appreciate being able to acquire these books (ie, art and craft titles) to have on my tablet, at a reduced price to the full meal deal paper version.
My focus is more on the medium. None of the images enlarge when selected, this is disappointing as I rely on the medium to give me that kind of functionality. The images have too much whitespace, as this is a book where detail is important it would be great to have more closeups. Some stock images of tools etc are low quality and appear pixelated which is disappointing.
The drawings in the instructions are clear, however they cannot be enlarged. My expectations are that I would get the same functionality that I experience with beading magazines in a book on beading. I look forward to the future when publishers understand the medium better.
