Good craftsmen always want to add to their knowledge and skills. Following the remarkable success of the first edition of this book, author Scott Sutton offers this new work which builds on the skills taught in the original. This volume presents eight new contemporary beadwork projects. Each is described in detail, with full-color photographs outlining each phase of construction. These popular projects also include information on the selection of materials, tools, and necessary supplies. But you don't have to be familiar with the earlier book to enjoy Scott's latest effort. Both novice and experienced crafters can make and learn from these new examples to be better able to produce other items as they progress. The information presented here unlocks the secrets of Native American craftwork and will inspire you to create beautiful beaded objects. Also in this new and expanded edition, Scott shares his wide range of experience in fan making with tips and techniques on extending feathers and using florets and other decorative feathers. Includes 8 additional pages filled with detailed instructions and new color photos.

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.
