A Russian Beadwork Technique BookBeading techniques and patterns from Russia, with text written in Russian, and accompanied by clear and easily-understandable bead and thread path graphs, and close up photographs of beading projects in process. There are also dazzling photographs of the completed projects, so you can get an idea as to the overall look of the item.
The projects include numerous necklaces, plus earring and brooch patterns, and there are a number of other fun items, too. Clothing items include skirts, hats, beautiful bead embroideries. For your hoe decor, there are tapestries and wall hangings, with delightful patterns used to cover egg-shaped armatures such as wooden bases, making them seem like those priceless, glittering, jeweled Faberge eggs.
This book will pay for itself in inspiration alone, the Gallery itself being worth the price. Look for the beaded dress and those gorgeous beaded collars. And don't miss the fantastic beaded cap, perfect for a bead-loving bride!
Diagrams are in black and white with a sprinkling of clear, readable close-up photographs, very helpful in visualizing the thread path and the layout of the beads in the particular technique being used.
