Beading with Gemstones
by Valerie MacCarthy
Beautiful gemstones in a rainbow of colors are the focal point of Valrie MacCarthy’s exquisite wire and chain jewelry in this paperback reprint of a Lark bestseller. Her stylish, organic jewelry designs embrace an eclectic balance of styles, from funky to sophisticated. Valrie shares her secrets and techniques in 30 simple-to-make yet gorgeous projects, including a balloon ring festooned with seed pearls; chandelier earrings with sparkling, dangling stones; and a fireworks necklace of citrine, peridot, and apatite.
Valrie MacCarthy has been making jewelry since childhood but only recently rediscovered her love for creating colorful and organic earrings, necklaces and bracelets. Soon her creations were being worn on the runways of New York Fashion week and gracing the pages of high fashion magazines from here to Japan.
