I CAN RIGHT ANGLE WEAVE by MABELINE GIDEZ
I Can Right Angle weave by Mabeline Gidez: from basic stitch to advanced techniques, a comprehensive workbook for beaders. 25 jewelry projects with 475 illustrations.
Mabeline Gidez has been creating jewelry since 1996. She has crafted her own exclusive line of beaded finery and also teaches jewelry-making classes at a number of popular Southern California bead shops and at Bead and Button Shows.
I have only weaved a tubular bracelet. But as I was studying this book I found several projects I want to try my hands at. The projects are very inspirational. Mabeline covers many aspects of this craft. She takes you through Materials and tools, basic flat RAW, Increasing and decreasing, embellishing, curves, going tubular, polygon stitch (a variation of RAW) and beaded beads. In this book Mabeline treats us to not just one gallery of various artist but also a gallery of some of her amazing creations. I truly feel like this book will appeal to beginners and accomplished right angle weavers or those wanting to learn this particular craft. So head on over to Larkcrafts.com and go to their bookstore to find out where you can pick up your copy of this brilliant publication.
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......
