How to Do Beadwork is a fundamental book on the craft,covering

every aspect in full,not only patterns and operations but selection

of materials —which beads to use,what type of thread,even what

size needle.The very lucidly organized text starts the reader off

with the simplest projects to complete,five bead chains (some with

tassels),and works up gradually to woven works.For weaving

beads,instructions are first given for constructing a good,basic

loom from a few simple objects,and then directions are detailed

for 18 different chains,various patterned fobs,three belts,and an

interesting card case.A slightly more complicated process of weav-

ing follows,diagonal weaving without a loom,and many items to

be made in this way (including a particularly beautiful purse with

butterfly design)are fully described and illustrated step-by-step.

________

There are also projects for those familiar with needlepoint or other

canvas work,like handsome bags with fringe,and if you knit or

crochet there are half a dozen evening bags and purses you can

bead.  Also included are directions for making lampshades,includ-

ing an interesting pattern derived from a Sudanese costume;hang-

ings; and decorating burlap curtains.  And there is a special chapter

devoted to projects for children:an easy-to make loom for weaving

belts,chains,etc.,and simple and well-illustrated directions for

chamois shirt and bead trim,moccasins,five bead chains,etc.

_____

For those interested in the history and ethnography of the craft, Miss

White discusses the beadwork of the primitives,concentrating on

the artifacts of the North American Indian (many of which are

pictured),but also paying attention to the work of such cultures

as the Egyptian and Eskimo.

_____

Whether you're a craftsman looking for exciting projects, or

a devotee of Indian arts, or a parent eager to find suitable home

activities for rainy days, How to Do Beadivork is a treasury of deligits.

____________

Even the novice can create colorful and interesting designs

with the right assortment of beads, thread, needle and the carefully

laid out patterns and easy-to-folloiv instructions provided in this book.
