Bring a blast of the past into your jewelry making with the help of Vintage-Style Beaded Jewelry. Vintage style is making a huge comeback, and there's never been a better time to explore the possibilities of old fashioned jewelry-making. With the help of the techniques, tips, and designs in this book, giving handmade jewelry some tried-and-true updates has never been easier.
Vintage-Style Beaded Jewelry begins with a brief introduction to beads and beading materials. Designed as a refresher course in the basics of DIY jewelry, this section is brief and to the point, giving a few paragraphs on places to find vintage-styled beads and on the techniques used in jewelry craft. The real highlight of this book is the jewelry designs, and there are enough crafts and styles to make any retro fashionista swoon.
With 35 projects in three different style groups, Vintage-Style Beaded Jewelry is a treasure-trove of diverse styles. From brand new ways to use old buttons and brooches to delicate crystal designs, there's something for everyone's style. Anyone who loves bold jewelry will love the striking colors and amazing structures of the statement necklaces and earrings. On the other hand, if your style prefers the minimal and the classic, you will adore the new uses of chain and charms to create classic jewelry staples with unique personal flair.
DIY jewelry is a craft of endless possibilities and designs, and with Vintage-Style Beaded Jewelry, you can explore those possibilities while retaining the timelessness of old-fashioned styles. With this craft book in hand, you'll be ready to root through your old supplies and emerge with those old beads and chains reborn into something that's equal parts old and new.
