From the Publisher:

Advanced Beadwork is a clearly written exploration of all major beading techniques, including metal work and soldering. With more than 300 illustrations and photographs, this is an indispensable book for anyone interested in beadwork.

From the Author:

This book grew slowly, from questions planted by readers of my previous book. It didn't seem to take long before short demonstrations became two day seminars, and then mimeographed instruction sheets. Finally, in self defense, a structured outline emerged.

My aim has been to organize all major beading techniques into one volume. In addition, I have tried to inspire experimentation, and to examine and end the "mystery" of drilling, sawing and soldering. I made no attempt to present numbered or graphed projects, since I deeply believe that all artists should explore and practice their craft until skills give wing to expression. Nor is this book meant to be a complete encyclopedia, as it is neither possible nor practical to cover every known procedure.

Based on my own personal methods and experience, each chapter is entirely devoted to similar skills- The drawings and photographs have been carefully designed to present each technique as clearly as possible

It is my sincere hope that this book will inspire many hours of creative discovery, and bring you further along the road to an art born thousands of years ago.
