This book features two dozen of my patterns which I've taught
over the years at bead conferences, the Bead & Button Show and various bead
stores. You'll love using odd bits of beads in the One-To-Many Strand Necklace
or creating a tiny basket of flowers with an unusual Zulu stitch. Or maybe you
have a bag of old buttons that you can turn into a Button Doll! If you're into
the Miriam Haskell jewelry style, you can try the Collage Pin and learn to wire
beads to a perforated metal base. There are projects for all levels of beading
experience from beginner to advanced.

Shapes open a world of
possibilities for creating jewelry. Begin with the basic flat shapes: triangle,
square, pentagon and hexagon, then move on to using these shapes in
three-dimensional shapes such as a pyramid, cube, tetrahedron and more and open
shapes like donuts. Patterns are also provided for ethnic jewelry such as the Tuareg Pendant and for natural motifs like the Trillium Necklace. The shapes are
created with peyote stitch and cylinder beads with a thread and needle. Some
beadwork experience is helpful but instructions are written for even a beginner.
