Review and Giveaway: Japanese Beadwork with Sonoko Nozue

cover art for Japanese BeadworkThe latest book in the Beadweaving Master Class series is rich and rewarding and will make you feel as if you are taking a class in Japanese Beadwork with Sonoko Nozue. Filled with 25 spectacular beading projects from this master of beadwork, you will not be disappointed with the luxurious beauty of the projects. As all books from Lark, the photography in this book is exceptionally stunning. Highlighting the Sonoko’s jewelry in color, the otherwise monochromatic photos shimmer with vibrancy.

Diane Fitzgerald says of Sonoko’s work that, “these exquisitely beautiful jewelry designs capture the delicacy and grace of the Japanese aesthetic for both novice and experienced beaders to enjoy. Each project takes a fresh approach to a familiar technique, resulting in classic wearable adornments that will stand the test of time and can even become family heirlooms.”
