Creative Native American BeadingBook - 2005
Following her successful Native American Beadwork, Theresa Flores Geary offers another beautiful collection of traditional beaded projects. These exquisite items range from a Huichol Lace Sun Catcher (perfect for beginners) to an advanced-level Waterbird Pendant, from a simple Ladder Chain Bracelet to a Sun Rosette Medallion. An Indian Girl Trinket wears clothes styled after Apache camp dress, often decorated with sewn trim: she wears moccasins, a silver necklace, and turquoise jewelry. The Sage Bear Sachet combines a powerful animal symbol with the use of relaxing herbs. It's made of seed and bugle beads stitched onto leather or ultra suede. In addition to the patterns the guidance on technique, there's fascinating background information on the myths and legends that inspired each design. A Selection of the Crafters Choice Book Club.
