Sabine Lippert's Beaded Fantasies : 30 Romantic Jewelry Projects Hardback
The bestselling "Beadweaving Master Class" series welcomes Sabine Lippert, Europe's top beadwork designer, in a gorgeous book that showcases 30 dazzling designs.
Lippert's lavish combination of glass pearls, crystals and seed beads evokes the Gilded Age and all feature her trademark tiers of beads layered into opulent jewellery.
Yet every piece uses the most popular and beloved stitches in beading: the right-angle weave and peyote.
Most of the bracelets, necklaces, earrings, pendants and chokers here are new, but Sabine has included a few of her favourite classics.
A gallery of Sabine's and other beaders' work rounds out this stunning volume.

Review by Acker
I am inspired by Sabine's designs which are challenging and beautiful.The pattern instructions list a detailed supply lost with bead colors by name which is so helpful if you wish to work with her colorway. Clear instructions, diagrams and the photography of each piece is clear and shows up the details of color and design. I recommend this book and own it.
Review by satyridae
Gorgeous, elaborate beadwork. Clear instructions. The photography is well-done. The projects are insanely complex and one imagines, quite time-consuming. They are not my style at all, but I sure enjoyed reading about how they are put together. My favorite part of the book, though, was where Lippert talks about her process, her design decisions. That alone was worth the price of the book.
