There is a particular kind of garden that is planted with flowers and plants meant to attract butterflies. In that garden, the butterflies become almost like moving flowers in their own right and add to the beauty of what has been planted. I wanted to bring that idea to life with thread and fabric (and, of course, beads!)
Start off by designing your own project and then proceed through 12 different necklace and bracelet projects. Learn about the various textures provided by different shapes and finishes of beads. Plus learn how to create patterns with color and how to prep, braid and finish each project. From a Retro 50s look to an Out of this World lariat, this book is filled with braiding inspiration.
Known as Russian Drawnwork or Ukranian Whitework, this type of work is lacy and beautiful and very satisfying. Right now, there are three seasonal designs, all the same size (5.4″x5.4″ on 28 count Cashel linen) with a fourth design on the way to complete the set. Each of the designs uses only #12 perle cotton for all of the stitching, making this quite an economical form of needlework.
