Beaded Images Vol II: Intricate Beaded Jewelry Using Brick Stitch by Barbara Elbe offers a second chance to break out of the traditional brick stitch earring mold! Once again Barbara Elbe gives us a glimpse of her creative genius with a series of original earring patterns which explore the many different shapes into which beads may be sculptured. The amazing detail of these designs results from the use of smaller beads. Delica beads are primarily used, along with some hexagons, but size 14 seed beads may be substituted.
Beaded Images Vol II includes basic information on beads, needles, thread, wax, workspace and lighting. Techniques for basic brick stitch, fringe, and the methods needed for bead sculpturing, i.e., increasing and decreasing the number of beads in a row, are fully explained and illustrated in great detail.
