The authors of this book explore both traditional and new ways of applying beads to a wide range of embroideries. Using diagrams and full-colour illustrations, they guide the reader through all the basic techniques, looking at the many exciting ways of attaching beads to fabrics and yarns. Sections look at equipment, colour, sewing beads and weaving with beads as well as a final section called the "finishing touch", which describes how to make beaded fringes, cards, chains and tassels for a professional look.
