Take a Journey Into Inspiration....
Kalmbach Publishing offers up a book chock full of jewelry projects inspired by a trip around the world. It is signature BeadStyle magazine which means the projects are beautiful, the directions straightforward, with photos that are clear and each finished project is lovely. Thirty two projects take you from Japan (a faux pearl three strand necklace) to Afghanistan (a lapis, glass and quartz bracelet-necklace combination) to the Caribbean (a coconut and coral necklace) just to name a few. The lovely cover necklace is inspired by Morocco with gemstones and is a perfect choice for a colorful art bead as the centerpiece.
Bead Journey is a great book to sit down and flip through while you enjoy a cup of coffee - rich with ideas and lush photos, it's to be savored and enjoyed. This is a book that will inspire you and teach you how to create lovely jewelry. Sit back and enjoy The Bead Journey, a must have for to inspire the jewelry designer!
