Description

Knotted necklaces look great when combined with beautiful ceramic, metal or wooden beads. Just one knot with several semi-precious beads is stunning. Once the techniques are mastered, designs can be as extravagent, or as simple as you want - no specialist equipment is required and no special skills. This book includes detailed step-by-step photographs, accompanying diagrams, helpful advice and inspirational projects.
