Written by renowned jewelry designer Valerie Hector, this book introduces readers to the quality, diversity, and artistry of beadwork from around the world, from ancient to modern. Rather than providing instructions for simply copying designs, this book teaches beaders to translate one or more of a piece's characteristics—color, design, technique, and dimensionality—into innovative contemporary jewelry designs. This book guides readers through 24 exquisite projects—necklaces, earrings, pendants, pins, bracelets, hair ornaments, and bags—inspired by museum-quality beadworks from cultures in four geographic regions: Asia, Africa, Europe, and the Americas.
