|August 23, 2010 Mixed Media has always been of interest to me. Lana plus her 10 designer friends bring nine mixed media projects together to give you a taste of each craft technique, how to combine them together for a whole new look, and new directions for experimentation.
Some projects are for beginners and others for those with some experience in one of the combined mediums. The book is in full color, and all photo illustrations are clear and easy to follow. Each project has a step-by-step approach to easily comprehend how to make each piece.
You will find chain maille, wirework, beading, bead crochet, macramé," polymer clay, PMC, fusing beads to combine for jewelry. You can spend time in the Gallery section. Pieces are all lovely and I was especially enamored with the Orchid necklace, Melting Icicles necklace and more.
You will be excited, thinking of new ideas to combine some of your own stash, resulting in a lot of fun and creating new beadwork. Enjoy. Lydia, The Beadwrangler
