Books on AFRICAN BEADING Techniques

Beading with Herringbone Stitch by Vicki Star, 118 pp, color
In case you thought that Herringbone stitch was too hard, or too ethnic, you'll change your mind after looking at this book, which puts a contemporary spin on this fabulous technique. The book begins with a brief history of the Ndebele people and a look at the important roll that beads play in their culture. All the technical basics of herringbone are covered, including flat, tubular and circular herringbone, increasing and decreasing, adding and ending threads, and finishing. There are only 4 projects included, but they are challenging exercises in the use of herringbone. There's an inspiring gallery section, and blank graphs which you can use to create your own designs.
