Synopsis

Jewelry makers and beaders love working with glass beads for their versatility, affordability, and ability to be used in a combination of techniques. Glass beads can add a subtle shine to a jewelry design or take center stage. From tiny seed beads to eye-catching lampworked beads, glass takes many forms-clear, transparent, opaque, vibrantly colored, shiny, or matte.

From sassy, elegant, dressy, or flirty, Create Jewelry: Glass presents 21 stunning projects ranging in difficulty from easy stringing pieces to more involved seed-bead weaving designs. All projects are glamorous and timeless and represent unique ways to use glass beads in jewelry designs for necklaces, bracelets, and earrings. Innovative designs are combined with intriguing anecdotes, history, and tips about these beautiful beads. Try your hand at a range of techniques, including stringing, wireworking, knotting, and bead weaving and stitches such as ladder stitch, brick stitch, tubular herringbone stitch, square stitch, peyote stitch, and more.

Projects are divided into Classic, Special-Occasion, and Fashion-Forward categories, so readers can easily find designs of their choosing. Beautiful photos are accompanied by step-by-step instructions that are easy to follow, plus thorough materials lists. Additional sidebars of interest include the history of glass, glass beadmaking techniques, and entertaining tidbits about these specialty beads.
