Item description for Beadweaving Brilliance 2: Make Beautiful Jewelry While Mastering Six Basic Beading Stitches, Special Bonus Section on Peyote Stitch by Kumiko Mizuno Ito...
In her follow-up to last fall's well-received Beadweaving Brilliance, Kumiko Mizuno Ito shows crafters how to make more colorful and unique beaded pieces using off-loom techniques. Readers will learn a variety of stitches that will enable them to weave beads into flat fabric or 3-dimensional objects with a single needle and thread. And even though the finished projects may look complicated, each piece is simple enough for a beginner to complete in only one to two hours. The first two sections of Beadweaving Brilliance 2 include detailed, step-by-step directions for making rings, necklaces, bracelets, lariattas, earrings, chokers, brooches, eyeglass chains and straps using the different stitches (peyote, spiral rope, daisy chain, herringbone, brick, right angle, etc.). A third section serves as an Inspiration Gallery, in which vibrant full-color photographs showcase masterpieces by the author and other bead artists. The book concludes with a guide to tools and materials, fundamental techniques and a directory of basic stitches. Enjoyable and satisfying, the projects in Beadweaving Brilliance 2 will let readers express their individuality and create gorgeous beaded ornaments for themselves or for special friends, family and loved ones.

Beading Brillance 2 Jul 25, 2008
I found this book with very good ideas and easy to understand instructions. I received this book quickly - faster than I was expecting.
self learning textbook for 6 basic stitches Jun 26, 2008
I was very excited about this author's first book so I see no reason not to also like this second one. She has 6 basic stitches with the emphasis on peyote in all its types. Three patterns for spiral rope for bracelet, necklace, and lariat. This is followed by patterns in 6 sitches. They include rings in peyote, eyeglass chain and bracelet in daisy, cellphone strap and bracelet in herringbone, necklace and bracelet in netting, earrings and pendant in brick stitch, bracelet and choker in RAW. Two pages on basic tools and supplies which include the latest materials, 3 pages called basic stitch maps illustrating the stitches. Then a "bonus" section on peyote. This includes bracelet in even peyote, ring in two drop peyote, bracelet and beaded bead necklace in tubular peyote and a lovely spiral necklace in peyote. Then comes 3 dinensional peyote with a miniature jewelry box and tiny tote bag. Followed by circular peyote with an applique, and a curly bracelet and frilled pendant. Then odd-count peyote with a cellphone strap, brooch and choker. The instructions include both words and color charts and lots of tips. The beads used are given in both millimeter sizes and the 8s and 11s which are the sizes used in the western world. I think that for the price this is excellent value and is good for self learning or with a class. I haven't made anything yet so will upgrade this review after I have.
