Here is a book that covers basics, advanced techniques, appropriate supplies, and actual examples, all richly illustrated and easy to follow. This volume covers bead work found among the western Plains Indians both past and present. Styles include loom work, applique, lazy/lane stitch and the gourd (peyote) stick (conventional, brickwork, and loom-variation). Also included are instructions are how to make and bead moccasins. Highly detailed step-by-step color photographs and illustrations complement each project. To help those just getting started, there is a full discussion of appropriate beading supplies with a simple chart to take the mystery out of matching needle and thread sizes. This work also features dozens of first-rate Indian-and-non-Indian made bead work from museums, private collections, and today's marketplace. This book is an artful contribution to the craft of bead working.
