DIANE FITZGERALD'S FAVORITE BEADING PROJECTS
FAVORITE BEADING PROJECTS: This 128 page Hardcover Book was Published by LARK CRAFTS.
In this book Diane very generously shares her designs, from stinging to Beadweaving. Diane Has been beading for some 20 years. She has vastly educated herself and shares her abundance of knowledge with us in this publication. Diane is an accomplished author of 10 other books. Diane not only teaches across the United States she also teaches internationally. She is the 2012 designer of the year for Beadwork Magazine and also a Swarovski Ambassador. I find Diane's designs to be fun, sophisticated, whimsical, delightful and adorable. I find her instructions to be easy to follow and the photography within this publication to be brilliant. I couldn't pick a favorite design, I fell in love with too many. I found myself daydreaming about what I could wear them with.
The Button Doll ornament pictured above is adorable. You could wear this ornament as a pendant, put them on a christmas tree or use them to dress up a packaged gift. These little dolls are so whimsical. I could see a tree just loaded with them .
The Sea Urchin Necklace pictured above is amazing, just gorgeous. Talk about the center of attention when you walk into a room. All eyes would be mesmerized by this design.
The Braided Garland necklace shown above is simply breathtaking. Throughout this book Diane not only gives you one picture of her designs she gives you variations of the design as seen above.
Each project has a list of supplies and step by step easy to follow instructions with bead layout figures, as seen in picture below.
Some people are born to be leaders, artist, teachers in various fields of Beading. Diane Fitzgerald is one of those people. She very graciously shares her brilliance with us one and all in this book as she has in her various other publications. Her work is Inspirational. Please enjoy the gallery of a few of the projects also included in this publication.

Fitzgerald on the Lark blog:
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......
