Secrets to Beading Success, now in a revised and expanded edition, empowers designers with a collection of valuable jewelry-making "Secrets"--techniques that will come into use again and again over a lifetime of creativity.

The 24 essential Secrets, each clearly explained and illustrated, are used in the book's 14 jewelry projects. The projects build upon one another over the course of the book, increasing the expertise level and the Secrets utilized. Also, the remaining components from each project are incorporated into the projects that follow it.

Secrets to Beading Success illustrates how to blend colors, textures and shapes for one-of-a-kind jewelry designs. Each design is treated to two variations in order to demonstrate the many possibilities of a particular jewelry style. For example, a lovely multi-strand necklace design is rendered first using colorful Czech druk glass beads, and then reinterpreted using precision-faceted SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS crystals.

A perfect gift to yourself or for any special jewelry maker in your life, Secrets to Beading Success is full of savvy Secrets for creating high-quality, high-fashion jewelry that will both flatter and sell!

Softcover, full color, 100 pages
14 projects

Product-Related Information
Dear Everyone,
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! While your on-line information has been invaluable for my questions, I have been reading "Secrets of Beading Success" and WOW! In the introductory note you say "16 comprehensive techniques," and you aren't kidding. I've been beading and designing since I was a child and am an artist and art teacher so I am familiar with art instructions that are confusing. Tamara Honaman has presented the information in such a way that guarantees retention and comprehension the first time and every time. And, it's not just the techniques, it's basic information as well. "Secrets of Beading Success" is like taking a private and advanced class in all the techniques and information - all at once.

In the past I did wirework and created beaded jewelry. But, when I wanted to bead-embellish a needlepoint angel stocking I designed, I thought I could go to my local bead shop for my beads and finish my project. After all, I only needed about 8-10 shades of burgundy. They finally located an appalling 2 colors! What a disappointment. I bought those two colors of 11/0 Delica's and a beading magazine. When I saw your ad on the back cover, I called for a catalog in the hopes you might have a "few" more colors. You can imagine my delight when I received my Fire Mountain Gems and Beads catalog and turned to the seed bead section - it was sheer heaven. I quickly determined the Delica's I needed for my project and placed my first order with you. I had a wonderful time ordering beads and supplies - I could not just stop with the seed beads! That was when I got "hooked" on seed beads. Although I am primarily a portraitist, my current artistic passion and outlet is an 11/0 seed bead tapestry based on a coffin lid I found in Palenque, Mexico. The ranges of flesh tone shades and colors I can obtain through Fire Mountain more than meet my artistic needs.

I have come to rely on Fire Mountain Gems and Beads for my beads and myriad beading supplies. With "Secrets to Beading Success" you have done it again - helped me become a more confident designer and jewelry maker! If you don't have it, it doesn't exist. Thank you for your high quality, reasonable prices, on-line help and continuing education. I stick with Fire Mountain Gems and Beads and am proud to be a loyal customer.

Gratefully,
Valeria
Texas
