This is the newest installment in the top-selling "Beadweaving Master Class" series features jewellery superstar Rachel Nelson-Smith. Nelson-Smith approaches beading like a jazz musician approaches a song; she improvises freely and creatively, playing unexpected variations on basic themes. Here, she reveals her signature techniques for combining right-angle weave, tubular peyote stitch and exquisite embellishments. Rachel's beautiful jazz-inspired pieces for intermediate beaders range from the Rondo necklace with repeated patterns to the Five Piece Band stackable ring. "Riff It" sidebars offer suggestions for personalising each design.
