Looking for a Beading with Cabochons : Simple Techniques for Beautiful Jewelry book? Interesting ... It looks like this book is on our website Beading with Cabochons : Simple Techniques for Beautiful Jewelry PDF - reading online is now so easy!

With this gloriously photographed and illustrated manual at hand, beaders can create awe-inspiring jewelry. It's the only current, comprehensive guide to working with cabochons--a flat piece of rock or mineral--and it covers all the basics, along with a range of new creative techniques and hot trends. Find out which tools and materials to use, which beads work best, and how to wrap them round the stones. Craft turned, pointed, twisted, brick stitch, ruffled, or scalloped edges, or add decorative fringe. For something dramatic, combine more than one cabochon in a single piece. Or, instead of natural stone, use dichroic glass or other found objects. Make a glittering brooch, funky bracelets, a wearable art necklace, and other showstoppers.

Although basic cabochon beading is covered in other books, this book is the first to contain step-by-step jewelry projects based exclusively on the many variations of cabochon work. Beading teacher Eakin includes many of her own original techniques.
