As the reader can see right away from the cover, this is a beautiful book. The author teaches her own techniques of beaded lace from every sort of can possibly imagine, and each project is extremely lovely in its own unique way! She offers earrings, rings, pendants, bracelets and necklaces. Each one captures the flirty, airy feeling of lace in a fresh manner.In her introduction, she explains what led her to create this book. "Beaded lace is a hybrid of lacemaking and beadweaving, and both have been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. In traditional lacemaking, threads are knotted together to make patterns; beaded lace mimics those patterns. When I was younger, I loved making lace using traditional methods; my threads and beads coexisted happily together. As time passed, I became more interested in beadweaving: lace takes a very long time to make, while beads are bright, shiny and work up into something pretty in much less time."The author goes on to explain how she experimented using beads until she got to the point where she learned to bead the three main elements of lace: figures, cordonnets, and ground.In this book, each project uses one or more of these elements. She adds that she hopes that we will go on to use them to create additional pieces of our own design. With a book as unique as this, how can we resist?Part 1, The Basics, has all the materials and tools needed to create the projects, with photos.Following that are the Elements of Beaded Lace.Here you will see how the author ties in the lace to the stitches you will be using in this book. She is a very clear instructor, and has combined these lace making and the beadweaving techniques together so that the reader will understand how one transfers to the other.
