Give yourself a workshop with Chicago jewelry designer Ani Afshar who will teach you step-by-step to weave jewelry with beads, fishing line, and wire. Learn to make a 10-strand bead necklace with clusters of various beads, a beaded coil choker with memory wire and fishing line, and seed bead loop earrings. Introduce your own selection of beads, if you like, as you build your skills with her guidance and 123 color photographs that detail each creative step. Also included is a gallery of similar styles Ani made using the same techniques. If you need supplies, kits are available for the jewelry in this book.
