This first book in the new series will get readers started in making beaded jewelry, similar to the hugely popular absolute beginner's course that Carolyn teaches. It introduced people who have no experience whatsoever, and who may never even have tried a craft before, to the basic techniques, tools and materials involved through simple, inspiring projects. It includes a pictorial glossary of the essential tools and materials used (with both UK and US terms); an index; and ten step-by-step projects through which people can learn the basic techniques used and at the same time create beautiful pieces of jewelry they would want to wear. Clear instructions, step-by-step photography and diagrams where necessary create a user-friendly guide. Projects will take no more than a couple of hours, making them achievable in an evening. Learn how to use memory wire, beading wire, stretchy cord, chain, jump rings, thermally bonded thread to make desirable jewelry pieces. Design tips throughout will encourage beginners to get creative and become jewelry designers in their own right.
