Beads & Buttons Summary

Beads & Buttons: 25 Simple Projects to Instruct and Inspire by Erika Knight

For the first time Erika Knight applies her unique flair for colour, texture and design within crafts to beading, presenting a must-have collection of 25 jewellery projects. Divided into three themes - Natural, Playful and Vintage - the designs all share Erika's innate sense of style.
Using driftwood, pebbles, shells and hemp twine or leather thonging, the Naturals projects reflect a modern mood within accessories for relaxed, easy-wear simplicity.
The Playful projects combine vibrant colour with unusual textures, such as crochet and felt, to create bold statement pieces, while the Vintage projects encapsulate fashion's ongoing love for antique glass, silver and mother-of-pearl to create treasured heirlooms.
Beads and buttons have been used for centuries as talismans, currency, decoration and adornment. Made from a huge variety of materials - bone, wood, glass, stone, shell, seeds - beads and buttons of all shapes and sizes can be found, collected, made and threaded with any number of fibres to create jewellery and adornment for clothing. This simple introduction to beads and buttons presents individual ideas on how to make show-stopping pieces. However, the projects are all unashamedly simple and easy to make.
