Craft colorful and unique jewelry with this Asian-inspired craft book.

Bracelets embellished with Chinese floral and butterfly motifs, a gold-and-pearl lariat inspired by the fridges of a Persian carpet, and the pupular Shamballa bracelet— these are just a few of the many artful pieces you'll learn to make in this wonderful new DIY jewelry book.

Jewelry techniques include:
  • Wire Strung Jewelry
  • Loop & Chain Jewelry
  • Memory Wire Jewelry
  • Knotted Jewelry
  • Elastic Cord Bracelets
Suitable for novices and experienced jewelry-making experts alike, some of the projects take just a few minutes to complete, and all of them are fun and inexpensive to do. They result in jewelry that looks great and can be worn anywhere! Most of the 33 jewelry projects in this jewelry making book use materials you can find in any craft store.

Each chapter in Creative Beaded Jewelry takes you through the basics of a different stringing method and then sets you on an adventure through the many ways you can use it to create your own personalized designs.
