It’s the newest thing in crafting: a hot mix of crochet and beadwork. These more than 50 projects for necklaces, earrings, and bracelets are all marvelously easy to make, using only the most basic stitches. Surround cabochons with a netting of beaded crochet to form the Opal or Stone Pendant Necklaces. The Pearl Frenzy necklace features freshwater pearls threaded into a chain-stitched design. For a matching set of jewels, try the Pretty in Pink or Snake ensembles. Each project includes color graphs and diagrams, and there’s plenty of information on stringing techniques, selecting the best fibers, combining different sizes and types of beads, and troubleshooting.

With this gloriously photographed and illustrated manual at hand, beaders can create awe-inspiring jewelry. It's the only current, comprehensive guide to working with cabochons--a flat piece of rock or mineral--and it covers all the basics, along with a range of new creative techniques and hot trends. Find out which tools and materials to use, which beads work best, and how to wrap them round the stones. Craft turned, pointed, twisted, brick stitch, ruffled, or scalloped edges, or add decorative fringe. For something dramatic, combine more than one cabochon in a single piece. Or, instead of natural stone, use dichroic glass or other found objects. Make a glittering brooch, funky bracelets, a wearable art necklace, and other showstoppers.

Handcrafting Chain and Bead Jewelry shows how to create beautiful, dimensional silver, copper, and brass chains using simple tools. The main style is based on the elegant, classical Byzantine pattern, and uses the Golden Ratio to determine the circumference of a chain’s interlocking rings based on the thickness of the wire. Illustrated step-by-step directions show how to calculate the circumference of the rings, how to wrap wire into coils, how to cut, and finally, how to assemble the chain. Starting from the basic Byzantine, new chain makers can then progress to increasingly Byzantine variations, including linear, knot, crown, and combination chains. Incorporating beads and charms offers endless possibilities for crafters who will soon, surely, be locked up in chains!
