From the author of Spellbound Beaded Tassels and Spellbound Festive Beading comes this beautiful collection of floral beaded jewellery projects.
Create your own beautiful floral jewellery with small beads, needle and thread. Each major project has fully illustrated step-by-step instructions with lots of diagrams to guide you through the making process, and is followed by further instructions to create even more pieces inspired by, and related to, the major project. There are beautiful projects for beginners like the Eloise necklace and bracelet, and the Carmen necklace and bracelet, through to more advanced projects like the cascading delight of the Sinensis necklace and the structured beauty of the Kyoto necklace and Akiko brooch. To complete the collection there is even a very cute Bee Hive beaded box with a hinged lid.
'The instructions are clear and comprehensive and are supported by excellent illustrations and lovely photographs.' Liz Thornton, Bead Society of Great Britain Journal, Autumn/Winter 2016
