Title: Soutache & Bead Embroidery- Three Basic Shapes
Author: Amee K. Sweet-McNamara
Publisher: The BeadSmith, 2012
While there is an infinite number of shapes that can be made with soutache & Bead Embroidery, there are some basic shapes that get used again and again there are basic techniques common to most designs. The projects in this booklet are organized to teach the simplest shape (the Koala Face) first with the second ( theHarp) being built off the first and the third (theLily) being built off the second. Each Basic Technique, when first introduced, will be explained in full. Basic techniques will be called out by being set in a colored box. Later, when referring to basic techniques the instructions will simply reference the technique in bold-face and the page number where it is fully explained as in, "ADD A JUMP RING (p.9) above the 6mm bead."
Each project in this book is designed to create a specific piece of jewelry (earrings, necklace, a pin) but the real emphasis is meant to be the mastery of shapes. Feel free to use the shapes in different ways.Skill Level: Beginner/Intermediate
