Create stunning bead jewellery: Learn how to combine wire work, chain, crystals and big beads with off-loom weaving to achieve unique results, whether you want bold, glamorous pieces or timeless elegance. The book contains more stunning, original designs by Heather Laithwaite following the phenomenal success of Dare to bead. With clear line-drawings and step by step photographs, the book can be used by beginners too, even for the more advanced designs. Most of the eye-catching projects are illustrated with several colour variations to choose from.
Coming from a strong design background, Heather Laithwaite has always loved the creative world. From running her own baby boutique she went on to designing and making a gift and baby range for Biggie Best for 12 years. She joined the Cape Embroiders Guild and learnt the art of embroidery, canvas work and lace making, and this triggered her interest in beadwork. This interest grew and she joined the British Beaders Guild. She loves playing with colour and texture and can explore both these elements through beading and design. Heather has taught beading and canvas work all over the Cape for six years, and the long waiting list to join her classes is testimony to the infectious enthusiasm with which she shares her amazing talent and skill.
