Synopsis

Diamonds are a girl's best friend, but you don't have to break the bank to create sparkling gemstone jewelry, and you don't have to be a professional designer to achieve gorgeous results. By adding a few or many semiprecious stones to jewelry designs-turquoise, amethyst, jasper, or onyx or any of the stones commonly available today-you can either punctuate or entirely shape the look and feel of a piece.



From sassy, elegant, dressy, or flirty, Create Jewelry: Stones presents twenty-three projects ranging in difficulty from easy stringing pieces to seed bead weaving designs. All projects are glamorous and timeless and represent unique ways to use stones in jewelry designs for necklaces, bracelets, and earrings. The authors combine innovative designs with intriguing anecdotes, history, and tips about these multifaceted beads.



Stones are a favorite design element in the jewelry designer's toolbox. Following in the footsteps of Create Jewelry: Pearls and Create Jewelry: Crystals, Create Jewelry: Stones presents stunning designs, all incorporating various semiprecious gemstone beads.



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, so readers can re-create their own designs. Additional material of interest for stone lovers includes stone basics, the differences between semiprecious and precious stones, entertaining tidbits about these specialty beads, and more.



Nearly all beaders, no matter what their interest or skill level, love some type of stone. Beaders love Create Jewelry: Stones not only for the projects but also to learn about some of their favorite types of beads.
