Simply Modern Jewelry is geared to the novice beader. It begins with 'Bead Shopping 101', a section that describes basic beads and shows how to make the most of shopping time and money. Danielle Fox, editor of Stringing magazine, takes the reader through selecting beads and colors to achieve project success from start to finish. Basic techniques covered in the book include stringing, crimping, use of jump rings, wireworking, and knotting. Each project lists materials, tools, finished size of project, level of difficulty, techniques, and complete step-by-step instructions and photos.
