Japanese Beadwork with Sonoko Nozue presents 25 jewelry designs by the fabulous and respected Tokyo-born teacher, all taught in the Japanese style of beading.
Sonoko was the first foreign instructor at Bead&Button — in 2005 — and her presence each year draws crowds and “oohs” and “aahs” of excitement. She is a star of the beading world — and we mean “world” quite literally here.
This new book takes her Japanese book Mode de Beads, which included instructions for nine projects, translates them, and adds instructions for 16 more jewelry designs by Sonoko, for 25 total — all in English, of course, and with a gallery of other beadwork from the author completing this magical book.
We invite you to sample the book: Click here to download a PDF of the Crystal Rose necklace project from the book, plus enjoy a taste of the projects in it pictured below. If you’re intrigued, tell us so, and then share the link on Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, and StumbleUpon. Please join Lark Jewelry & Beading on Facebook, too, and we invite you to visit Sonoko’s website — which is in Japanese, of course!
