Reissue of the popular and best-selling book The Beader's Bible!

The Beading Bible is an encyclopaedia of beads and beading techniques that aims to educate and inspire anyone who loves working with beads.

The Beading Bible begins by looking at beads themselves; how to choose beads from metal, modelled, gemstone, seed and cylinder beads to hex beads, crystals, glass and bugle beads. There are handy tables to help you to understand how beads are measured and bead quantities, as well as advice on choosing bead colours. 

The book is divided into eight chapters that cover all the traditional techniques: bead loom weaving, off loom bead stitches, ropes and cords, fringing, netting and tassels, threading and stringing, wire work and jewellery techniques, bead embroidery and even knitting and crochet with beads. Within each chapter you are guided through the basic skills, tools and materials, before tackling more advanced techniques. Inspiration pages will give you interesting ideas using the different techniques, and there are over 30 fabulous projects, ranging from beautiful bags and jewellery to stylish scarves and accessories  perfect excuses for trying out your new skills! 

Easy-to-follow step-by-step instructions, clear diagrams and stunning photography combine to create the must-have resource for beaders of all abilities.
