Inspired by the best of a century's designs, Vintage-Style Beaded Jewelry shows you how to create 35 delightful designs for your very own modern heirlooms. Deborah Schneebeli-Morrell uses a range of widely available materials to create jewelry for any event, including ideas to wear every day, such as a simple button necklace, and occasion pieces, such as a wedding tiara embellished with beads and paper rosebuds. Despite their glamour, many of Deborah's projects are

surprisingly inexpensive; she shows how to make old china into cameo brooches, how to reuse jewels for a glistening two-strand bracelet, and how to revive a beloved but broken necklace as a stunning pearl necklace. Ideal as a gift, many of the bracelets, necklaces, brooches, and earrings can be created in an afternoon. With tips on how to work with found objects, Deborah shows how to transform favorite but

damaged costume jewelry and thrift store finds into precious pieces that can be treasured forever. Clear step-by-step artworks and the use of simple techniques such as wiring, beading, and netting mean that even the beginner can produce stunning results.

- 35 original projects to create modern heirlooms for yourself or to give as gifts.

- Projects include delicate drop earrings, elegant brooches, and classic pendant necklaces.

- Ingenious ideas on reusing old junk and thrift buys.
