SKU: B00/32 Classic Earring Designs by Nola May
No wonder beading is so popular! It's easy to learn, and creating beautiful, personalized accessories is a very satisfying experience. Nola May believes that beaded earrings frame a face like a picture and highlight the personality within without saying a word. We are delighted to present this collection of Comanche Weave (or Brick Stitch) and Lace earring designs, whose color combinations are inspired by Mother Nature herself. Here are the pinks, purples and blues of sweet peas; the yellows, golds, creams, rusts and burgundy tones of chrysanthemums; and the reds, oranges and golds of maple trees in fall.
Aimed at beginning and intermediate beaders, this book has 52 new and exciting beaded earring designs that are sure to stimulate the creativity of advanced beaders as well.
With complete, easy-to-follow instructions and plenty of illustrations, the book begins with a listing and brief explanation of the materials needed for beading. This is followed by a section of general instructions useful for making any beaded earring design. There are basic instructions for Commanche Weave Earrings with illustrations and bead-by-bead patterns for basic Comanche Weave designs.
Directions and line drawings for creating several variations follow. These include bugle bead tops, bugle and seed bead combinations, seed bead base rows, tube earrings, stars and diamonds.
The last section contains illustrated instructions for making round and rectangular lace earrings.
A great way to learn the craft of beading!
