We’re so pleased to be releasing this publishing season the first book in English from German beading superstar Sabine Lippert. Sabine is a relentlessly prolific beader and endlessly imaginative designer, as well as a social media force to be reckoned with and loved. Simply put, she is one of the most popular beaders in Germany, in Europe, in the United States, and in the world. You can read my comprehensive interview with Sabine on this blog from mid 2010.

Sabine Lippert’s Beaded Fantasies presents 30 of Sabine’s jewelry designs; all the projects utilize peyote or right angle weave, beading’s most popular stitches. The book includes plenty of beautiful photography, excellent instructions and how-to illustrations, a special chapter by Sabine about how she approaches design, and a gallery of photographs of beadwork Sabine admires. See the full table of contents at the bottom of this post.

The book will officially publish on May 1. Ask your local bead store or bookstore to carry it, or you can order the book online at Amazon.com or BN.com.
