Beaders are always seeking new ways to create complex effects and sophisticated looks for their beadwoven creations. In Lush & Layered Beadweaving, experienced teacher and designer Marcia Balonis breaks down the process of layering beads into easy-to-make designs. Each of the 20+ jewelry projects starts with a layer of beads that serves as the base. Balonis instructs jewelry makers to stitch layers of beads to the base to create gorgeous dimension and texture. The projects make the most of beaders' favorite materials, including multi-hole beads, seed beads, pearls, crystals, and glass. Balonis has a well-developed sense of color and utilizes numerous different colors and shades into her projects. Each project includes clear step-by-step instructions and photos. Experienced beadweavers will love Marcia's projects that incorporate many colors, intriguing ideas, and lush designs — and will want to make them all!
