Dieses Buch ist der Hit. Ich habe schon sehr viele Perlenbücher gesehen, aber was mir an diesem ganz besonders gefällt, ist, dass es ein richtiges Gesamtkunstwerk ist. Es stimmt einfach alles, die Aufmachung, das Layout, die grafisch sehr gut aufgebauten und fotografisch unterstützten Anleitungen, die Farben. Besonders pfiffig, wie die Autorin ihre Liebe zum Jazz und zu den Perlen auf besondere Weise verbindet und zeigt, wie sie die Improvisationen aus der Jazzwelt in die Perlenkunst übersetzt. Die Stücke sind ja immer Geschmacksache, aber ich finde sie fast alle ganz wunderbar - kein Perlenkitsch, sondern peppige und jazzige und dennoch sowohl alltagstaugliche, als auch "abendgarderobentaugliche" Projekte, die allesamt phantasievolle Namen tragen und kleine Geschichten haben. Sehr beeindruckend auch das ausgezeichnete Farbgefühl der Autorin. Prima, dass die Stücke in vier verschiedenen Farbvariationen gezeigt werden; diese vier grundlegende Farbvariationen stellt die Autorin am Anfang auf einer Übersichtsseite vor, alle fein aufeinander abgestimmt - auch das eine tolle Idee.
Anfänger sollte man wohl nicht mehr sein, aber als fortgeschrittener Anfänger komme ich gut klar.

Ein ganz tolles Perlenbuch für alle, die Spaß an kleinen Perlen haben. Ich habe viele interessante Projekte vorgefunden, die zur persönlichen Abwandlung einladen und Inspirationen für eigene Kreationen bieten.
Die Erklärungen in englischer Sprache sind aufgrund der gleichzeitigen Bebilderung auch für ungeübte Leser leicht zu verstehen.
Eine besonders schöne Idee sind die Farbvarianten am Ende jeden Projekts, die erkennen lassen, wie unterschiedlich der Eindruck durch geänderte Farbstellung sein kann.
Dazu die Geschichte der Autorin und ihren Weg zu und mit den Perlen.
Für mich ein wunderschönes Buch.

HASH(0x947beca8) von 5 Sternen Bead Riffs Beautifully Done 25. August 2011
Von Marcia Decoster - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Rachel's Bead Riffs presents 23 beautiful projects combining Right Angle Weave and Peyote stitching in well thought out designs. There are many exquisite projects to choose from and Rachel gives us three examples of color use for each of the projects. Rondo is a stunning choker, and Night in Tunisia is a personal favorite.The Nightingale earrings made of 2mm Swarovski Elements are and excellent use of sparkle and the Dolled Up Bracelet uses Rose Montees cleverly sewn at the ends of peyote tubes. In Billie's Bounce Rachel uses the thread as part of the design element for an interesting effect. Cocktails for Two is an other personal favorite. The illustrations are well done and their is much here to increase your techniques and provide you with beautiful jewelry.

HASH(0x947c909c) von 5 Sternen Find your groove with Bead Riffs 28. August 2011
Von Karen Firnberg - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Rachel Nelson-Smith's Bead Riffs has something for everyone. A Jazz theme runs through the book inviting you to sit and absorb it for a while. I have browsed through it a few times now and every time I find something else I want to try. Bead sellers should see a spike in sales after people purchase this book.

Rachel has a sense of color that is matched by very few. She has included five color ways to help beaders in their color choices for their own projects. What a nice touch. They are named Nature Girl, High Times, Stagelight (a favorite), Softly (another favorite) and Blue in Green. The instructions are well written and illustrated. Most of the beads she uses are easily obtained and may already be in the beader's stash.

Projects run from the simple to the extravagant. Among the more simple pieces are Billie's Bounce (which uses contrasting thread and embellished wheels), Fly Me To The Moon (I love the Stagelight color way version of this) and High Style (I see so many possibilities for this one). The more extravagant pieces include Dolled Up (one of my favorites) and Jazz (a scrumptious statement piece). Other favorites of mine are Phraseology (great contrast, texture and color play in this one), Birth Of The Cool (very wearable, lots of color and texture) and Cocktails For Two (I see so many options for making this).

I highly recommend Bead Riffs and think you will enjoy it, too.

HASH(0x947ca57c) von 5 Sternen Jazz and beads combine to make some wonderful pieces 8. September 2011
Von Shala Kerrigan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Rachel Nelson-Smith has been beading for a very long time, she also sings jazz. This book is jewelry inspired by her love for jazz music.
After you read the introduction, there is a 20 page set up section which explains the tools and supplies as well as being a primer in the techniques used in the jewelry. One of my favorite parts of the set up is a photo of the color palettes she works in. The instructions are clear with diagrams as well as photos that use contrasting color beads to show how things are joined together.

Most of the jewelry in the book is built from a single needle right angle weave base. It creates the frame work for embellishment which is done in netting and peyote.

The projects are separated by type rather than by technique. So the first project chapter is Necklaces. The ornate layered collar "Jazz" is a project easy to get enthused about because the embellishment has so much room for personal expression. My favorite is "Fly Me To the Moon" with it's beaded donut.

Rings and Earrings puts on the glitz and sparkle with dimensional encrusted pieces that make use of rose montees and other kinds of sparkly. The Billie ring, named for Billie Holiday would make an amazing cocktail ring.

Bracelets are my favorite kind of beading, and the Bracelets chapter is my favorite. Dramatic cuffs and lots of sparkle. My favorite bracelet is the "Something Cool" with rivolis, drops and size 15 beads.

Recommend for advanced beginners and intermediate beaders who really love sparkle and glam. This book is full of that sort of beadwork. Drama rather than delicate, it's statement jewelry that is still very wearable. It is part of Lark's Beadweaving Master Class line.

At the end is a gallery of jewelry by various artists that's just fantastic. It uses the same stitches and some of the same techniques as the jewelry in the book, the gallery pieces are art and inspiring. The author picked them well.

It's a lovely book with well written instructions and wonderful pieces. I recommend putting on some Sarah Vaughan or Miles Davis while you're deciding which piece to make first.

HASH(0x947ca270) von 5 Sternen Get beading with "Rachel Nelson-Smith's Bead Riffs: Jewelry Projects in Peyote & Right Angel Weave" 28. August 2012
Von Kevin Tipple - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Blending a love of jazz and a love of beading seems to be a perfect idea as the author, Rachel Nelson, points out in the introduction. As in jazz, improvisation in beading is something to be celebrated and embraced. The 128 page book is built around 23 of the author's beaded jewelry designs based on right angle weave and variations of tubular peyote stitch. Hence the distinctive subtitle of Jewelry Projects in Peyote & Right Angel Weave.

After the brief introduction to Rachel Nelson-Smith's Bead Riffs it is on to "Chapter One: The Setup." Starting on page 10 through texts and pictures the chapter explains the materials needed and their various types, the threads involved, tools required, and techniques required. This leads into detailed instructions on how to do the "right angle weave" of various types. Mixed in with pictures of various results are pictures of the author and her bandmates making music to reinforce the basic idea of the book that jazz and beadwork both require the same skills and inspirational artistry.

Once you have mastered the basic ideas in Chapter One it is on to the actual projects. Those begin with "Chapter Two: Necklaces and Pendants" on page 33. The projects such as "Polka Dots and Moonbeams" (pages 34-37), "Rondo" (pages 44-47) and "Fly Me To The Moon" (pages 69-72) and others all have a musical tie in. Each project has a small introduction that explains the reference of the title, a list of supplies, techniques required, and a description of the finished size of the object. Each project has a picture of the finished item as well as several close up pictures of various detail elements along with detailed instructions. Under a "Riff It" section on some of the projections there are several suggestions on using the same design to accessory objects and/or how to individualize the piece. This same format continues throughout the book.

"Chapter Three: Rings and Earrings" comes next and starts on page 73. This is where you can learn how to make the "Nightingale" earrings (pages 80-81) or the "Five-Piece Band" rings (pages 82-85) among other projects. Like everything in this book, as well as any book of this type, you have to look at the pictures and instructions in the book to see if the project will work for you as the names of the projects aren't going to tell you much.

That short chapter gives way to "Chapter Four: Bracelets." Starting on page 89, projects such as the beautiful "Swing Time" (pages 97-99) and the truly "Something Cool" (pages 108-111) among others are covered.

The book closes with a photographic gallery of work from various artists that is visually stunning. That naturally leads into a short galley of the author's own work. That is equally impressive before being followed by an author's bio, an acknowledgement section, an index, and a one page advertisement of other books of interest to readers.

This 128 page book that also bears the logo "Lark Jewelry & Beading--Beadweaving Master Class" is clearly not for beginners. While there is introductory material to beading found in the book these projects are based on the idea that users have some experience in beading that they can build off of to create these projects. Visually appealing with numerous detailed projects, Rachel Nelson-Smith's Bead Riffs is a book that will serve its intended audience very well.

Material supplied by the good folks of the Plano Texas Public Library System.

HASH(0x947ca8e8) von 5 Sternen Not What I Expected 28. August 2011
Von gottheglitz - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I adored Rachel's first book & was SO excited when I found out there would be another from her to add to my collection. Although the photos & stories are beautiful, there was nothing there that I could not have found in other beading books. I expected projects that would be new & different from what other people are doing. I did not find this book to be different from what is already out there. If I had waited for it to appear in stores & looked at it, I would have saved my money for her next book, or purchased something else. The photo gallery actually is much better than the projects listed, but there are no instructions for those. Some of the instructions are hard to follow, even for an experienced beader. I'll keep it on my shelf, but her first book was by far MUCH better.
