The editors of Beadwork magazine reveal the elegance of pearls with projects, photography, and history in this tribute to nature's iconic gemstone. Step-by-step instructions for 20 stunning projects involving natural, freshwater, and imitation pearls are accompanied by photos to guide jewelry makers of all ability levels through the wide range of materials, colors, and shapes used in these elegant and wearable designs. Broken into three sections, "The Classics" covers traditional pearl stringing and simple earrings, "Special Occasions" includes a striking copper-colored choker and a lariat suitable for a bride, and "Fashion Forward" contains a bangle with fiery-colored pearls and a dramatic bracelet using handmade beads and dyed pearls. Chapters on the science and culture of pearls include tips on selecting, working with, and caring for these treasures, while engaging anecdotes and vibrant images of pearls throughout history round out this informative and entertaining book.

No pictures, except finished products  Nov 3, 2008
You will have to read every steps in order to make them. Not for the visual learner!!
Awesome Book of Pearl Designs!  Jul 1, 2008
If you love pearls you will not be disappointed by this book. It is filed with beautiful designs, from a classic knotted pearl strand to edgy black pearl tassel necklace and a very chic modern Edwardian dog collar. Those were some of my favorites, but there is something for everyone in here!

In addition, there is a fantastic history of pearls that the author adds in along the way. Everything you could want to know, from technique to origins to ancient lore. I loved reading this book!!!
Ordered, read and then on to Amazon to buy!  Dec 11, 2007
I first saw this book in my local library and thought it was a book about pearls. I had to order it because it was a new accession at the time. When I finally received the book it was a real revelation to find out that I could make these designs if I wanted to! I was very impressed with the wide range of modern jewelry shown and the details about how the designs were made up. There is not much information on the beading tools needed etc but this is easily found in other well priced books that this site sells on pearl jewelry making. The real strengths of this book are illustrating the wide range of pearls available today for jewelry making and the beautiful pieces that can be made. I live in Australia and the fact that I searched this site to find this book and was happy to pay the high shipping fees gives you some idea of the degree to which I enjoyed this book and wanted to own it.
Easy-to-read instructions  Sep 22, 2007
I have several how-to jewelry books and this one is in the top 5 as far as having pieces that I will actually make. I consider my skills intermediate and will be making at least 4 of the projects as Christmas gifts. So many of these type books have what I consider to be outlandish designs and this one has really lovely, more traditional pieces. The instructions are clear, the supply lists complete (including sources to find components), and the pictures terrific. Enjoy!
Pearly whites  Sep 4, 2007
If you are unfamiliar working with pearls, this is a good book for design ideas. I was disappointed that the author did not focus on how to string pearls; although, this is an introductory book on pearls. I found the history of pearls interesting. If you are interested in designs, this is the book for you.
