This volume brings together some of the best of Julia Pretlrs"s bead collections. In this compilation of the authorrs"s previous three books,Beaded Collars,Bead Knitted Bags, andLittle Bead Boxes, readers learn the authorrs"s original methods for beading miniature vessels, knit purses, and classic neck pieces. Pretl, an innovator of form and technique, offers instruction for creating four-, five-, and six-sided rectangular, square, and stacked miniature boxes; vintage-style bead-knitted handbags; and intricate neckpieces, inspired by the dramatic jewelry worn by the ancient Egyptians. Each of the projects contains a materials list and instructions presented both in written and charted form. With detailed instruction and sequenced illustrations, the author provides clear, step-by-step guidance. The enclosed DVD offers a series of video tutorials in bead knitting, with all the techniques needed for the projects included (for both left- and right-handed knitters!), and full-size printable PDFs of graphs.
