Craftspeople who admire striking Indigenous designs can now create beautiful, colourful beadwork originated by the Chippewa, Iroquois, Pawnee, Seminole, Winnebago, and other American Indian tribes.
This book is a complete guide to this time-honored handicraft, offering step-by-step instructions, clear diagrams, and 71 tribal designs for two types of traditional bead applications — bead weaving and appliqué beading.
You'll find fifty versatile designs charted on graph paper for bead weaving and twenty-one full-size patterns for appliqué, including transfer instructions and color keys. Easy-to-follow directions tell you how to construct your own bead loom. Choose from a rich array of motifs rendered from authentic Native American artifacts found in museum collections — stars, exciting geometrics, sunbursts, exquisite florals, and much more.
