Questions Answered on Everything from Basic Stitches to Finishing Touches
Dorothy Wood and Ashley Wood - All books by this author

200 Q&A Series - All books in this series

Using the handy easy-reference Q&A format, this comprehensive guide for both beginning hobbyists and experienced jewelry makers opens with a detailed section that describes the many different kinds of beads available to craftspersons. They include glass and lampwork beads, as well as beads made of crystal, natural or cultured pearls, ceramics, metal, wood, seeds, and semi-precious stones. The book’s second section deals with what bead makers call findings, the hooks, clasps, crimps, posts, and other materials used to mount beads and transform them into jewelry. A third section focuses on threads and wires for beaded necklaces and bracelets, and a fourth section describes the array of essential beading tools, which include special needles, pliers, cutters, beading boards, and more. The book’s remaining sections instruct in stringing and knotting, bead weaving, bead looming, advanced wirework techniques, and creative ways to use beads. The book’s 200 questions and answers are complemented with approximately 100 color illustrations.

About The Authors:
and Ashley Wood, a mother and daughter team share a lifelong passion for beading. Both have published a number of books and articles on beading and jewelry making.
