BEAUTIFUL BEADED ROPES by JILL WISEMAN
The minute I opened this 120 page hardcover book containing 24 wearable jewelry projects in multiple stitches,I knew why it was so highly anticipated. The jewelry designs are stunning, elaborate, magnificent and brilliant. The photography is outstanding.
The author Jill Wiseman began beading in 2001, and since beginning to bead her life hasn't been the same. Her true love is beadweaving. Her natural aptitude for the craft was encouraged by local instructors and eventually led to a full-time teaching and design career of her own, first locally and now nationwide. Jill has taught at the Bead and Button Show, various Bead Fest shows, and bead stores and bead societies from coast to coast. Jill and her mother, June Wiseman created a business called Tapestry Beads.
Jill has received an abundance of praise from fellow Artist such as Laura McCabe, Maggie Roschyk, Carol Dean Sharpe, and Sabine Lippert just to mention a few.
From chapters 2 through 7 you are treated to 24 gorgeous jewelry projects. Each project has written instructions and stitching figures that are easily understood and followed. Before the projects begin you are given complete instructions on supplies and techniques in chapter 1. In Chapter 2 the projects begin with spiral ropes. In chapter 3 peyote ropes. In chapter 4 Netted ropes. In chapter 5 Herring bone ropes. In Chapter 6 Raw ropes. In chapter 7 you cover Other stitches such as Oglala stitch, Brick stitch and Chevron stitch.
The instructions are truly informative and easy to follow. Jill Wisman's extensive knowledge really shines through in this publication. Her total presentation is utterly brilliant. I feel so honored to have this book gracing my bookshelf and I know you will love it also. Please enjoy the following pictures of some of the projects.
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......
