Special Order—Subject to Availability
A comprehensive step-by-step guide to bead stringing for keen jewellery-makers.

Beaded jewelry is popular among crafters as it requires very little by way of tools or materials. Jewelry School: Bead Stringing, written by Carolyn Schulz, author of Jewelry School: Let's Start Beading, helps the reader to make attractive, wearable items of beaded jewelry in no time. Bead Stringing is a progression from Let's Start Beading, and focuses on the specifics of bead stringing, teaching the reader more advanced beading techniques.

The book is divided into three sections: beading on tiger tail, beading on thread, and decoration and pattern. Through clear, colorful step-by-step photographs Carolyn Schulz guides the reader through the whole process and focuses on a series of projects that readers will be impatient to try for themselves.

In the second book in the Jewelry School series, Schulz continues her exploration of bead stringing, this time focusing on specific types of stringing material. The first section illustrates methods that use Tiger Tail (a type of beading wire), the next features Wildfire (a type of beading thread), and the final section offers additional ideas using the techniques outlined in the previous sections. The projects include 11 necklaces and a bracelet, ranging from fairly simple strings to necklaces featuring floating and dangling beads. Each project demonstrates basic construction techniques and includes detailed color photographs illustrating the steps required for each fundamental skill. As in the first book, each project includes a list of learning outcomes, and Schulz’s background as a teacher is also evident in the detailed, step-by-step instructions. A photo-illustrated materials glossary and list of tools explain the uses and contexts for each. Tips are interspersed throughout, offering finishing touches and best practices to achieve a polished finished project. Recommended for libraries where craft books are popular. — Anne Heidemann
