Before we moved I received two books from Lark Jewelry and Beading. The first is Marcia DeCoster's Beads In Motion, and will be the book I tell you about today.
Now, one can't go wrong with a DeCoster beading book so right off you should have this book in your library. There are 24 very exciting beading projects. The step by step instructions are easy to read. The graphics are clear and precise, showing thread movement and direction. Once you begin making these projects you will be thrilled that some of them move, spin, and slide. The beading techniques are well know, however are elevated to create fun jewelry pieces.
This book contains instructions on rings, bracelets, earrings, and necklaces that can all be worn with just about any outfit.
If you are still hesitant in creating some or all of Marcia's designs, then take a look at the artists who have contributed to the gallery section. Stunning pieces that will motivate you to get the beads out and start creating!
