Beading is very dear to Sabine's heart as you can see once you turn the pages of this beautifully written book. In chapter one she covers the items she uses to create her projects: Materials, Tools & basic techniques such as peyote stitch, right angle weave, cubic right angle weave, tubular right angle weave, fringe and picots, loops , attaching clasps and bending a head pin.
LET THE PROJECTS BEGIN:
In chapters 2 through 5 you are treated to 30 fabulous projects. Each project has a list of supplies, step by step detailed instructions and figures of bead lay outs.
In Chapter 6:
In the Authors words, quote " This chapter is meant to encourage you to allow your own projects to evolve through trial and error". Sabine endeavors to help you see that with time comes experience as she mentioned.
Then you are treated to a Gallery of exquisite creations by various brilliant artist. But does the book end there, oh no , you are also treated to a gallery of the author's amazing creativity. These pieces will blow your mind. They are truly gorgeous.
I found this book to be published in the highest quality. The photography as mentioned earlier is beautiful. Sabine Lippert is a brilliant artist. She has been praised by several well known authors and artist such as: SHERRY SERAFINI, RACHEL NELSON-SMITH & SUZANNE GOLDEN, just to mention a few.
You will not be disappointed with the projects in this book, they are absolutely gorgeous. I would be proud to wear any of her pieces. They are extremely wearable. Sabine shows such elegance in her pieces. This is such a grand opportunity for all to be able to recreate such unique and stunning jewelry. This beautiful publication deserves a spot in all crafting libraries.
I would like to leave you with this quote from the author herself, "I WANT TO INFECT YOU WITH MY OBSESSION WITH BEADS".
I have a sneaky suspicion that this publication is doing just that...And now for your enjoyment a few more pictures of Sabine Lippert's creativity.
Well I am married to a wonderful man. I love designing jewelry. I have been a jewelry artisan for over ten years now.
I also have a great love for animals...Right now I have a 16 year old boston terrier and three boxers. I am also starting this blog site with loads of my jewelry designs and tutorials I have come across in my search to learn and improve on my craft. I would love to hear from fellow beaders. Thanks for stopping by......
