Maggie Meister’s Classical Elegance, our latest release in Lark Jewelry & Beading‘s Beadweaving Master Class series, contains 20 sumptuous jewelry projects inspired by classical architecture, mosaics, tiles, and jewelry. Maggie includes a section of instructions for a variety of beadweaving stitches–peyote, ladder, brick, square, herringbone, RAW, Nepal chain, St. Petersburg chain, backstitch–used in the projects, and she teaches how to combine the stitches.
To give you a taste of the book, click here to get a PDF of the Artemisia Earrings project, inspired by knot patterns in the marble floors of Santa Maria Maggiore in Rome.
