Knots & Beads

Knots & Beads


Reviewed by Christine Weiher, Editor,

When you're looking for easy jewelry to make and share then look no further than Knots & Beads from Leisure Arts. This book is perfect for all DIY'ers out there, especially for young adults, teens and tweens because this book will show you just how easy it is to tie a few knots and add some cool beads.

Creating super-cool jewelry for yourself or a friend is what it's all about. Crafting with friends, even if you think you're not crafty at all, has never been easier with this book. There are 10 cute bracelet and headband patterns that are calling your name; one of them is even a cat collar! Each design is either made using embroidery floss, hemp cord, braiding cord, or craft cord and can easily be put together by following the instructions provided.

If you're just starting out in the beading world and have only made a few bracelets in your time then you'll love the guide in the back of the book on how to tie knots. There are instructions and illustrations on the overhand knot, the Lark's Head knot, the square knot, the left knot, and the right knot. This will come in handy when you're ready to pick a design from the book.

My favorite bracelet is the Dream Catcher Bracelet because not only is it an awesome design, but dream catchers are really popular. Although it's only made of embroidery floss and cord, it really looks like a dream catcher. The silver beads make the perfect embellishment for the finishing touch.

Chevrons, diagonals, chains, beads and rhinestones are all included within this book, so if you're ready to dive in and make a bracelet or two then let Knots & Beads be your go-to guide.
