Bead Embroidery Stitches and Techniques


In stock


Previously available as an e-book, this useful dictionary of bead embroidery stitches and techniques, hot off the printing press, is now available in hard copy.  Because, truthfully, most of us prefer hard copy books by our sides while we are stitching and learning.

The stitches and techniques in this book have been developed by me over the last twenty years. Having not used beads in my embroidery previously – because I didn’t know what to do with them – I was introduced to the wonderful world of off-loom bead weaving by Manie Kriel. Apart from the joy of creating jewelry, my mind was buzzing all the time as to how I could incorporate some of these techniques into my embroidery. It didn’t take me long to get started and many years later, this book is the result of stitches that I have modified, invented, formulated – some based on conventional embroidery stitches and others that use modified beading techniques to achieve the end result.
