Counter Once they were used to carry good luck charms, but now these glittering and delicate beaded purses are so beautiful you'll want to wear them as jewelry! Made from brick stitch, peyote stitch, square stitch, and netting, these small bags also drip with ornamental fringes and chains. It takes very little equipment to get started, and there's a complete description of tools, techniques, and the most important element of all: the variety of enticing, luminous beads. One of the most stunning designs is a wonderful Celtic black purse, with a pattern reminiscent of traditional knotwork and dangling silver bells. Follow the patterns in the book precisely--or let your imagination fly and come up with original color schemes. 144 pages (all in color), 7 1/4 x 9 3/4.
