There were many exciting days in the book writing process, the day I was asked, the day my proposal was accepted, the day I finished the last project, the day I finished the last illustration, the day I finished the last edit, and I'm pretty sure the day it is finally released in September will be an especially good day.
But as excitement goes, seeing the book cover is close to the top of the list, and so today I share it with you!
Pretty, heh? I think it fits the whole opulent theme. The book is second in a series called Beadweaving Master Class. Diane Fitzgerald's Shaped Beadwork was first in the series. I've had the projects back since early this year and have been sharing sneak peeks as I travel and teach. Here are a couple of sneak peeks for the blog readers as well.
There are 24 projects in the book, illustrating different ways of working with right angle weave. There is fabric, rope, armatures, curves, embellishments, and layers. And each technique has 3 to 5 projects ranging from simple to more complex. I think beaders new to right angle weave will find plenty of designs they can create to build their skill level. There are also many designs which will advance the skill or intrique the more seasoned right angle weaver.
