French fashion maven and muse Nathalie Delhaye has spent years collaborating with top Paris designers, collecting insider secrets from fashion’s favorite ateliers along the way. Now in Beads, Buttons, and Bijoux, she shares some of those secrets, showing readers how to transform a few pennies’ worth of beads into chic, sparkling jewelry.
The book offers 58 projects for creating rings, necklaces, bracelets, and pins from such simple materials as seed beads, glass and plastic beads, buttons, sequins, charms, and found objects. Each project is presented with simple, clear instructions and is accompanied by a list of required materials and full-color, step-by-step illustrations.
Beautiful photographs, extraordinary designs, and concise, easy-to-follow directions make the book a delight to use, and a chapter devoted specifically to materials explains the essential tools and supplies needed for making jewelry.
