Book Description

June 30 1999
Attach them to curtains, lampshades, dresses, bags, and pillows: beaded tassels add sparkle to anything--as these hundreds of diagrams and photos brilliantly show. You probably even have most of what you need at home already. Choose from a variety of styling options, bead types, and tassels (including the humbug, frilled neck, netted neck, and patterned neck). Plus, try 9 types of skirt, 6 kinds of fringe, and 8 heads. Finish off with lots of trimmings and baubles--ruffs, tiny flowers, cubes and squares, and much more! 128 pages (all in color), 8 1/2 x 10.

Product Details


Product Description

From Library Journal

Large decorative tassels are usually made by covering a wooden mold with cord or thread. Campbell-Harding adds beads in a variety of beading patterns to her tassels, creating delightful lacy baubles that can be used to embellish curtains, lampshades, or clothing. Pierce specializes in beaded bands, many inspired by Native American designs, made on a traditional beading loom and used as neckpieces. His book concentrates on looming techniques and includes photographs of his own works and those of others. Both books are good additions to general crafts collections.

4.0 out of 5 stars Beaded Tassels Jan. 3 2001
Format:Hardcover
Want to dress up drapery tiebacks with tassels or hang your beads from the ceiling fan switch? Valerie's book gives you lots of ideas to serve as a springboard.
Not only does she give good instructions for traditional bead weaving, including brick, peyote, and netting stitches, to make your tassels, but also she shows how to make braids and cords. She suggests the combination of beads and cords in projects, including buried or berried bugle cords, crazy and flower chains, and branched fringe.
If you don't want to make tassels, but need ideas for fringes on medicine bag necklaces and amulet purses, this is the book for you.

4.0 out of 5 stars Imaginative and content rich Sept. 20 2000
Format:Hardcover
Beaders wanting to expand their talents can reach for this book for both inspiration and instruction. There are hundreds of ideas here, for every level. Not everyone will understand all the instructions and some of the components could have been written with more detail, but with a little effort and perseverence these projects are within reach of a dedicated beader. Serious beaders and tassel makers will revel in a book that provides challenges, solutions and professional results.

Format:Hardcover
Borrowed this book from a friend and had to buy my own! Many wonderful beading techniques and ideas. Beautiful for tassel making, but also many stitches which can be applied to other types of beadwork. Great fringe ideas, lots of different elements. Well laid out with lots of pictures for inspiration.
