Beads have been used around the world for almost as long a people have had the means to bore holes and to string materials together. Although the earliest beads were made from pieces of animal bone or horn, from shells or from seeds, it was not long before wood, pottery, metals and glass were being used. This book contains detailed, step-by-step instructions for over fifty inspirational projects. There is something to suit everyone, from necklaces, chokers and earrings to a camisole, an evening bag, a watchstrap and even Christmas decorations. Each project has a materials list at the beginning to help you organise all the equipment needed to make a piece.
