    Here's a second chance to break out of the traditional brick stitch earring mold! Once again Barbara Elbe gives us a glimpse of her creative genius with a series of original earring patterns which explore the many different shapes into which beads may be sculptured. The amazing detail of these designs results from the use of smaller beads. Delica beads are primarily used, along with some hexagons, but size 14 seed beads may be substituted.

    The book includes basic information on beads, needles, thread, wax, workspace and lighting. Techniques for basic brick stitch, fringe, and the methods needed for bead sculpturing, i.e., increasing and decreasing the number of beads in a row, are fully explained and illustrated in great detail.

    Chapter Two contains earring designs with horizontal base rows, ranging from a penguin hanging by it's beak to flying mallard ducks and a horse rearing on it's hind legs.

    Chapter Three has patterns with vertical base rows and is filled with cuddly cats, a big eared dog and a yellow ducky.

    Chapter Four is called Girls, Curls & Clowns and these designs are three-dimensional with noses, bows and curly hair.

    All of these techniques are fully explained and there are 29 delightful patterns in all.

    An outstanding book for those seeking to stretch their creative legs.
