Inspired by art history, artist Lisa Kan offers a truly unique jewelry collection with a romantic yet modern sensibility. Bead Romantique: Elegant Beadweaving Designs features seventeen step-by-step designs inspired by the Gothic, Renaissance, Victorian, and Art Nouveau eras reinterpreted in her distinctive contemporary style. Emphasizing a mix of vintage findings, beads, lampwork, buttons, and modern components, Lisa's jewelry brings a feminine mystique and sophistication to beadwork design.
Each project builds on simple elements to create sophisticated designs and incorporate off-loom seed bead weaving, stringing, and wirework. Projects include a scalloped chain necklace, pearl Ndebele earrings and bracelet set, mesh pearl bracelet, bohemian drop earrings, a Victorian diamond cuff, and more. Novice beaders can progress through projects and increase their skills and beading confidence while advanced beaders will find exciting new challenges. Included are Lisa's expert design and technique tips and tricks along with detailed instruction and illustrations for every project. Lisa also gives information on finding special vintage beads and components to give your jewelry that romantic quality plus ways to make modern components look vintage.
