Bead Expert - Timeless Wood

The title of this, the fourth in our Bead Expert series, reflects the ancient origins of using items made from wood and papier-mache to decorate and adorn. Both have been enjoyed by mankind for thousands of years, yet Joan Gordon introduces two talented contemporary artists who show that it can still bridge the gap between the ancient and modern worlds by creating jewellery and home decor items whose beauty is truly timeless (updated with new cover).

Full Description
Debbie Riehl is an artist who works in many mediums, but here she shows how the simple and easy art of papier-mache can be cleverly combined with semi-precious stones and freshwater pearls to create highly original and attractive items that can be adapted to many uses. Debbie creates three home decor projects that are highly textural with a modern contemporary look. Learn step by step how to make bowls, napkin rings and book covers. Recycle cereal boxes, newspaper, cards and magazines. Experience the pleasure of working with handmade silk and natural fiber papers. Master this technique and make your own designer home-wares, the possibilities are endless. Seeing a beautiful and delicate piece of work emerge from a solid block of wood like some living thing is a special experience. Adrian Hoe shows that with a few surprisingly simple and inexpensive tools and materials anyone can share this experience and enter the world of woodturning. He takes us through three projects: how to make a simple wood turned bead, a more advanced pierced bead that combines wood with lampwork glass beads, and finally a babies' rattle that would make a treasured gift to last a lifetime. This is an educational yet entertaining DVD and one that would suit those looking for a new hobby or to further their creative skills. The featured artists are both professionals and experts in their chosen field of work. Each project is clearly and concisely explained and covers work that is suitable for the complete novice through to the more experienced paper crafter or wood turner.
