CREATIVE SEED BEAD CONNECTIONS using wire, jump rings, and chain By Teresa Meister
Creative Seed Bead Connections: using wire, jump rings, and chain was written by Teresa Meister and published by Kalmbach Books. Teresa holds a bachelor of fine arts degree from Mason Gross School of Arts, Rutgers University. Today Beads are at the heart of her Jewelry designs. Teresa was profiled in the German beading magazine Perlen Poesie (issue 6). She has also contributed to Bead Unique and other beading Magazines. She teaches nationally.
Okay honesty has always been very important to me. So I have to admit, I have never been very partial to seed beading. It always overwhelmed me to the max. But Teresa Meister has helped me over come my fears. Her projects in this book are not overwhelming at all. Teresa takes her time and shares her knowledge with us all. I love the way she incorporates wirework techniques in these seed beading projects. Those techniques give her designs that extra pizzazz and elegance. At the beginning of Teresa's book she tells you how to use her book so you can gain the most from it. Then she goes through the bead weaving materials and tools used in her projects. Then you get a break down of information you will need on : beadweaving techniques, wirwork techniques, and working with chain techniques.
Now the Projects begin.
Each project is supplied with a list of tools and materials you will need for that particular project. There are tips and detailed figures you can follow for each round. There are 13 projects but each project is for a set including necklace, bracelet and earrings. So in all actuality you are getting a lot more projects. At the end of her book, Teresa generously supplies you with a list of her resource. This book is a refreshing journey through creative seed bead connections. I give this book 2 thumbs up. If you are interested in purchasing this book you can go to your local bookstores or call the Kalmbach store at (800) 533-6644 and order your book directly.

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......
