“Beyond Beading Basics” di Carole Rodgers | Libri per creare gioielli con perline

Ciao! Nuovo video su uno dei libri che ho di recente acquistato sul sito
Potete reperire il libro anche su siti come

Nel caso di questi due ultimi siti vi ricordo di cercare i libri all’interno della categoria “Books”, dedicata ai libri in lingua inglese.
Oggi vi parlo di “Beyond Beading Basics” un libro di Carole Rodgers. Il libro è in lingua inglese ed al suo interno contiene tutta una serie di progetti che possono esservi di aiuto se siete ancora principianti. I progetti contenuti nel libro sono estremamente semplici da realizzare e vi introducono a tecniche lievemente più complesse per la creazione di gioielli. All’interno troverete le spiegazioni di tecnche che richiedono l’uso di perline, quali peyote, right angle weave, square stitch, netting, ed inoltre ci sono anche progetti che vi illustrano come utilizzare ad esempio perle con più fori. Per quanto mi riguarda il libro non mi ha stupito più di tanto, perché speravo che contenesse qualcosa di più complesso, ma è assolutamente ottimo se siete proprio all’inizio e cercate ispirazioni e progetti semplici da realizzare. Spero che la review possa esservi utile, a presto!
