This fresh design approach to seed-bead jewelry will teach you how to fuse, merge, and mix materials and techniques, colors, inspiration, and design ideas for seed-bead jewelry with a contemporary edge.

Seed Bead Fusion is all about:
  • Fusing materials, techniques, and inspiration that creates eye-catching seed-bead jewelry.
  • Mixing silver and copper wire, seed beads, Czech glass, and crystals for a unique melange of materials.
  • Combining wirework with seed beads, beadweaving with wire, stringing with beadweaving, and multiple beadweaving stitches in a single piece to create extraordinary sculptural seed-bead jewelry.
  • Finding design inspiration from a wide range of sources, including Indian Punjabi folk costumes and Native American beading.
  • Detailed step-by-step photography adds a workshop aspect to the book.

All of the basic beadweaving stitches, basic wirework, and stringing techniques are shown as illustrations in a getting-started section. The 18 projects are an inspired mixing of techniques in a single piece.

I bought the book and I love it. It is so helpful I am buying the ebook to have and use when I don't have access to the hard cover book. The pictures are great and the instructions are easy to follow. I was admiring so many pieces done by fellow beaders that were projects from this book. I just had to buy it. I am so glad I did. This is a great deal, get it. Review by Wendy (Posted on 7/25/2013)
refreshing new ideas
I love this book. The different ways she has incorporated wire with seed beads is inspirational. I have made 4 of the projects from the book. Friends always remark on the finished bracelets. Review by Sherri Bichel (Posted on 7/17/2011)
seed bead fusion 18 projects to stitch wire and string
this is a fun book. i love the sculptural pieces such as pacific waves. there are also many projects a novice beader can accomplish without too much difficulity. the variety of techniques is also a nice surprise for any beader who would like to try something new and only have to invest in 1 book. this book reminds me of many of the japanese books i have with great illiustrative photos on each step of the project. i also like the use of color. there ae so many bright colorful pieces that will keep me busy over the dreary winter months.
