In Lush & Layered Beadweaving, experienced teacher and designer Marcia Balonis breaks down the process of layering beads into easy-to-make designs. Each of the 20+ projects starts with a layer of beads that serves as the base.

Balonis has a well-developed sense of color and utilizes numerous different colors and shades into her projects.

• Finished pieces include bracelets, necklaces, pendants, and more.

Lush & Layered Beadweaving: Stitch Jewelry with Texture and Dimension goes beyond the usual beginner's focus on beads or weaving to teach the basics of multi-dimensional jewelry design, and comes from a teacher and designer who uses projects to demonstrate the potentials of working with texture in jewelry-making efforts.

Crafters who like working with beads but who want to branch beyond the usual beadwork focus will find plenty of ideas for adding gems and crystals into the mix.

Some twenty pieces of jewelry come with step-by-step instructions and a blend of color photos and illustrations, including alternate construction options.

The result should be in any crafter's collection, especially those with some basic familiarity with bead weaving who want to expand their horizons when it comes to adding texture and detail.
