Description


Over the centuries, Native Americans have used beadwork to ornament clothing and a wide variety of ceremonial and utilitarian articles. Now you can create colorful, interesting designs of your own with this beadwork design treasury featuring scores of Indian motifs: buffalo, kachinas, eagles, feathers, lightning bolts, and more.
While many of the patterns appear in color-coded charts for beadwork, others can be used in appliqu and embroidery projects, as patterns for stained glass creations, and in numerous other crafts. Easy-to-follow diagrams enable even beginners to create a striking array of gorgeous authentic motifs that will add rich, ornamental touches to T-shirts, vests, blouses, handbags, belts and headbands, cushion covers, table linens, and many other items.
An inexpensive way to create beautiful gifts for friends and family, this user-friendly design book will also introduce you to a time-honored craft practiced for centuries by the first Americans.

New Hope for American Art was authored, designed and published by James M. Alterman, an expert in the field of Pennsylvania Impressionist and Modernist painting. A longtime collector and owner of two fine art galleries, Alterman wanted to create a user-friendly book intended not only to educate collectors and enthusiasts about this art but to help train one's eye. The book offers valuable tips on how to avoid common mistakes often experienced by new collectors drawn from the author's personal experiences as a collector and fine art dealer.
