Getting Started with Seed Beads PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Getting Started with Seed Beads free pdf Don't know the first thing about beading? All it takes are some seed beads, a bit of thread, wire, or glue, a needle, and a little inspiration from Getting Started with Seed Beads. Author Dustin Wedekind takes readers through the process of working with seed beads, from shopping to storing and from stringing to sewing a successful beginning project. This must-have resource includes all the basics in a warm, encouraging tone: how to shop for beads, findings, and tools, giving the basic techniques with clear step-by-step full-color illustrations, and of course, plenty of great projects. With Getting Started with Seed Beads, you'll begin by simply gluing beads to a base, then progress logically to manipulating traditional stitches such as peyote, backstitch, brick stitch, square-stitch frames, flat and tubular peyote stitch, netting, herringbone stitch and right-angle weave. You'll also learn how to finish off your project expertly. Projects include beaded buttons and rings, a curiously beaded tin, a beaded and sequined pin, beaded ribbons, scrunchies, bracelets, a coffee press cozy, and much, much more.
