The appealing techniques range from loom weaving to brickstitching, and a primer with all the basics covers each method so beaders can get going right away. An Irish Sunset brooch features classic Celtic knotwork and exquisite stitchery; pearls and stones add extra dimension to the pin. A Heart Ornament, done with filet beading, makes a great gift for a loved one. Or stitch and bead a Kilim Rug, Kimono, Pretty Bridal Bag, Bargello Lamp, and Sunset Panel.
