This volume brings together the best of Julia Pretl’s bead collections.
In this compilation of the author’s previous books, Beaded Collars, Bead
Knitted Bags, and Little Bead Boxes, readers learn the author’s original
methods for beading miniature vessels, knit purses, and classic neck pieces.
Julia offers instruction for creating four-, five-, and six-sided rectangular,
square, and stacked miniature boxes; vintage-style bead-knitted handbags;
and intricate neckpieces, inspired by the dramatic jewelry worn by the
ancient Egyptians. Each of the projects contains a materials list and
instructions presented both in written and charted form. With detailed
instruction and sequenced illustrations, the author provides clear, step-bystep
guidance. The enclosed DVD offers a series of video tutorials in bead
knitting, with all the techniques needed for the projects included (for both
left- and right-handed knitters!), and full-size printable PDFs of graphs.
