Product Description

Review

"(Sonoko's) jewelry is made for fashion, but in a way that it can be worn with everyday clothes too. As always Lark has taken an artist view and brought it forth in print. This book is elegant in it's entirety. The instructions are easy to follow and the photography is exceptional. This instructional book is truly one you must have. Sonoko takes time tested stitches and creates jewelry with sophistication and polished designs. Each of the 127 pages of the striking book will keep you intrigued." - The Beadwright blog
 
"All the pieces in this book are extensively diagrammed with very clear thread paths. The instructions are complete and easy to follow. The bead projects ... use simple stitch techniques in unexpected ways. The designs are sculpted one pass at a time, starting with a base stitch. They are curved and shaped with different bead counts and sizes to create shapes that are wearable and won't flip or gather. A lot of the designs show how effective monochromatic color schemes can be using different bead finishes. The curves on some pieces are like mathematical models, and look like they have more planes than you'd believe possible. It's very wearable and elegant." - Shala Kerrigan, BellaOnline.com
 
“These exquisitely beautiful jewelry designs capture the delicacy and grace of the Japanese aesthetic for both novice and experiencd beaders to enjoy. Many will recognize Sonoko from Bead&Button shows as the elegant lady in a lavish Japanese kimono. Now you can enjoy all she has offered in her classes through the pages of this book. Each project takes a fresh approach to a familiar technique, resulting in classic wearable adornments that will stand the test of time and can even become family heirlooms.” — Diane Fitzgerald
 
“I was one of the fortunate workshop participants who studied with Sonoko, the preeminent Japanese master instructor, at her 2005 Bead&Button debut. Her teaching style is beautifully presented with clear and concise illustrations in this comprehensive book. Sonoko’s brilliantly designed and refined work reflects the Japanese aesthetic beautifully. This is a must-have book for any beader from beginner to advanced.” — Nancy Cain
 
“Sonoko Nozue is a master of graceful design. Her projects tantalize with lush texture, fine details, and layers of interest. Her elegant color palettes evoke a classical and timeless age. She manages to take the simplest stitch and elevate it to a new level by making a seemingly minor change, creating a whole new world to explore. Each time I pick up this book, I find more to absorb and delight in.” — Jill Wiseman
 
“Sonoko is a national asset for Japan and a treasure for the beading field. Her expertise and masterful skill in seed beadweaving is extraordinary, and these projects beautifully showcase her remarkable talent. The distinctive blend of classic design incorporated into contemporary style makes this book highly relevant to all readers. The unique techniques, as well as the inspirational gallery of work by this gracious artist, will stimulate my own creative endeavors.” — Melanie Potter

"The latest book in the Beadweaving Master Class series is rich and rewarding and will make you feel as if you are taking a class in Japanese beadwork with Sonoko Nozue. Filled with 25 spectacular beading projects from this master of beadwork, you will not be disappointed with the luxurious beauty of the projects. As in all books from Lark, the photography in this book is exceptionally stunning. Highlighting Sonoko’s jewelry in color, the otherwise monochromatic photos shimmer with vibrancy." - Craft Gossip

"Sonoko Nozue is a gifted master artisan. Her 25 jewelry designs are exquisite. Her color palette is captivating. I can’t wait to collect my tools, beads, and thread, and get started." - Razine Wenneker

This woman has taught for the last few years at Bead & Button in Milwaukee. After buying this book, I would not hesitate to take a class from her. The drawings are concise, showing all thread paths for the stitches and there are a great variety of different projects and stitches that are used.

Another great book to have in any beaders personal library.

Considering how complicated the Jewelry in this book looks in the beautiful photographs, I was pleasantly amazed at the beautifully simple instructions for creating each piece. This is a truly amazing book that belongs in every beader's "tips and techniques" library. I would give it ten stars if I could.
