Beading With Crystals…


There’s a new beading book on the block with two of my designs in it.  I got a copy in the mail recently and it did not disappoint….promise!  It starts with a brief history of crystals followed by material and tool information.  You can find techniques like knotting, stringing, off-loom beading, wire working and moi’s how to weave beads into gems like these:


I enjoy how the designs showcase the wide variety of crystal shapes and components.  There are several designs in the book that I want to make for myself too!  Inspirational from all angles, I give it 5 Swarovski Star Pendants!


Beading with Crystals is authored by Katherine Aimone and Jean Campbell, published by Lark Books.
