Description: A collection of beaded miniatures, made with fine wire, embroidery threads and a variety of beads and sequins in a huge range of colours, shapes and materials. An introduction to the basic materials is followed by a series of miniature projects. These are graded according to simplicity and cost, and include a comprehensive list of materials. Each project introduces the techniques needed and uses step-by-step instructions and clear diagrams to explain the detail. Designs range from picture and mirror frames to sachets, bags and creative table decorations. Unusual candle holders and lampshades exploit the sparkle of glass beads when they catch the light. A range of truly original designs for all occasions.
