Casual Bead Elegance, Stitch by Stitch features 24 projects in timeless bead stitches, starting with simple applications and expanding each stitch with more elaborate pieces. Though the focus is on learning and applying specific techniques, the resulting projects are wearable and casually elegant, using beads in any beader's collection (seed beads, crystals, pearls, gemstones, and shaped beads). Whether the goal is to learn and perfect a stitch or merely to follow the instructions for weaving lovely projects, you will find plenty of earrings, rings, bracelets, and necklaces to make and wear in this collection. Stitches include ladder, right-angle weave, cubic right-angle weave, herringbone, square stitch, circular brick stitch, and peyote stitch.
