One of my favorite books is:
Fabulous Fabric Beads: Create Custom Beads and Art Jewelry.
If you've not seen this book and love fabric and beads...this one is a must!
It is authored by Kristal Wick and published by Interweave books. At $22.95 it holds a plethora of techniques, projects,tips,and inspirational photos of art jewelry.
Techniques are not difficult and the supplies needed are probably in you crafting stash already.
So whether you are a quilter or jewelry maker you will find some very exciting things in this book to get your creative juices goin'.
