We've all tried beading in our childhood, making bracelets, rings and amulets. It's one of the easiest crafting skills of all and you can create really attractive pieces in very little time and with not very much money (especially compared to the expensive designs on sale in shops). But there is more to it than threading beads in a row, and Juju Vail will show you the key beading techniques, from wire-work to loom weaving and beading stitches such as peyote stitch, brick stitch and the daisy chain. The 25 step-by-step projects range from a spiral chain bracelet to sophisticated choker as well as a woven beaded purse and an embroidered table runner. If you can't resist the charms of those tiny pots of beads in rainbow colors and shapes, but don't know what to do with them, this is the book for you.
Juju Vail first starting making things at the age of 9, when she crocheted the Italian flag. Since then, she has felted, painted, crocheted and beaded her way through life, writing books and pieces for magazines as well as teaching and selling her work. Juju was born and brought up in Canada, but has lived in London for the last 18 years. jujulovespolkadots.typepad.com
