Beading with Herringbone Stitch
A Beadwork How-To Book
Suddenly, beads are everywhere, from the necks of celebrities to the wrists of schoolgirls to the fashion runways of New York—and the art of working with beads has risen proportionately. Herringbone stitch, a versatile South African off-loom bead technique, feels like snakeskin and has a visible chevron pattern. It’s a favorite among beaders, and yet no other book devotes itself entirely to this method. With historical information, cultural background, techniques, projects and instructions, and a gallery of inspirational pieces, this is the foremost guide to a unique beading technique. The fifth book in the Beadwork How-To series.
