Contemporary Bead & Wire Jewelry/ Suzanne J. E. Tourtillott
Making Bead and Wire Jewelry sold more than 67,500 copies—and because one great success deserves another, here’s a second chic collection featuring the very best in contemporary design. Created by today’s finest artisans, these pieces all showcase the incredible diversity of interesting beads and wire types available today. The photographs alone will have beaders and jewelry makers sighing with delight: from Marinda Stewart’s glistening coppery pink flower pin to Eni Oken’s exotic “Bollywood Dreams” earrings, everything’s simply stunning. Plus, they’re all easy to make, because no soldering’s required, just basic wire shaping! Fashion pearly, spiraly post earrings; the gleaming amber “trapped in honey” pendant; a rajah bangle that recalls the jingling ankle bracelets from India (but with beads instead of bells), and other beautiful jewels. A Selection of the Crafters Choice Book Club.
