Description

This book is in a class by itself. Featured are dozens of full-color photos of both Indian and in-Indian made beadwork from museums, collections and today's marketplace. Instructions are accompanied by large, highly detailed, step-by-step color photos and illustrations. Four styles of beadwork are covered: loom, two needle applique, lazy stitch, and the gourd (peyote) stitch. Presenting both basic and advanced techniques, the author also includes detailed instructions on how to make and bead moccasins.

About this Author

Scott Sutton has had a life-long passion for Native beadwork. He beaded his first loom piece when he was six years old. Through the Boy Scouts of America and the California Indian Hobbyist Association, he met great teachers who instructed him in beading. Attending powwows (singing and dancing) and going to museums brought inspiration. Scott is gifted with the ability to look at a piece of craft work and then recreate it as will as being able to design without having to draw things out. His moccasins have graced the feet of many dancers at powwows across the country.
