JAPANESE BEADWORK with SONOKO NOZUE
JAPANESE BEADWORK with SONOKO NOZUE 25 Jewelry Designs from a Master Artist
Published by LARK CRAFTS An Imprint of Sterling Publishing Co., Inc.
A part of Lark Jewelry & Beadweaving Master Class
ABOUT THE AUTHOR: SONOKO NOZUE began teaching bead class in Nagoya in 1995. She began teaching at BEAD & BUTTON in 2005. Three years later she was the first international instructor invited to teach a Master Class at that event.
Sonoko has been highly praised by Nancy Cain, Melanie Potter, Diane Fitzgerald and Jill Wiseman just to mention a few.
Sonoko is a star in the beading world and her brilliance shines for all to see in this 127 page hardcover rich and rewarding publication.
A few words that describe the designs in this book would be: Elegant, Lavish, gorgeous, luxurious, stunning, vibrant, brilliant, outstanding, beautiful, feminine and my very own word for this book is FABTABULOUS!...
When using this book you will need to be able to follow written and diagrammed instructions . Each project has a supply list as well as detailed diagrams. The designs are very wearable adornments and if cared for could become family heirlooms. Diane Fitzgerald said and I quote: "These exquisitely beautiful jewelry designs capture the delicacy and grace of the Japanese aesthetic for both novice and experienced beaders to enjoy." Please check out this free pdf of the crystal rose necklace project. http://www.larkcrafts.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/01/CrystalRose.pdf
I would be remiss if I didn't mention the stunning photography in this publication as in all Lark crafts publications. Please enjoy the following photos of a few of the projects you will enjoy in this book.
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......
