Item Description...
There is no other book on the market that presents broadcollar projects for beaders-a traditional form.

Julia S. Pretl, author of Little Bead Boxes and Bead Knitted Bags, has created a collection of beaded neckpieces, inspired by broadcollars, the dramatic jewelry worn by the ancient Egyptians and a well-known form among beadworkers. She has adapted the traditional form-a broad, beaded necklace-to create ten original designs for the modern beadworker, with skill levels ranging from beginner to more advanced.

With step-by-step illustrations and easy-to-follow patterns, Julia leads the reader through the techniques for creating the stitched "ladderö -the basic unit that is combined and joined in various ways to create each of the unique designs. She also teaches readers how to build a custom-sized template, choose a color palette, and create decorative fringe, layers, pendants, and netting to add the finishing touch. The introductory chapters present the basic beading and assembly techniques, illustrated with clear, digitally rendered, and color-coded drawings. Four-color photographs of each of the 10 designs and 10 detail photos illustrate each project.

Beaded Collars  Nov 23, 2008
I found this book to be as wonderful as portrayed. There are a wide range of beautiful collars for all occasions and styles.
Exquisite  Apr 6, 2008
I thought the beaded collar on the front of this book was beautiful. The projects throughout this book are exquisite. One breathtaking design after the other.
A great basic reference  Apr 4, 2008
I've greatly admired Julia Pretl's fantastic collars and pre-ordered this book. I hope that Julia considers putting out an advanced version - because I'd hoped to learn how she incorporated bead embroidered pieces into her collars and didn't find any reference to that here. Still, I give her book full marks as a reference and learning tool. The information is clear, the illustrations second-to-none and the projects are interesting. Although the concept of the collars is simple - learning how to construct and use a template, how to use one or two needle methods and her many tips are invaluable. I know I'll enjoy teaching myself her methods. Next book - my wish list is some additional embellishment techniques and a gallery section, but for now - I feel I more than got my money's worth from this excellent book.
Beaded Collars  Mar 23, 2008
This book is well written and helpful pictures to help you get started making collars. Bead work and different ways of making the collars are very helpful. There are alots of steps to make the collars but the book makes it very easy to understand how to incurperate different patterns into one collar. I recommend this book for any beader beginners and ones that have been beading for years. I am sure anyone that gets this book will really like it like I do.
Beaded Collars:10 Decorative Neckpieces Built w/Ladder Stitch  Mar 22, 2008
As I looked through this book at each beautiful collar, they made me think of a pretty little white bead collar of my Mother's, from the 1950's. It was in two pieces, which I tried to repair, but it just didnt look the same. Now I can make her a beautiful new one.
