‘Beaded Cakes in Miniature’ is the second of Katie Dean’s ebooks to be published by Vivebooks. RRP is £18, but you can buy it directly from the author or publisher at the reduced price of £17.
Katie has designed ten miniature beaded cakes to celebrate a range of occasions (‘Bling’ for all occasions, Birthdays, Christmas, Weddings, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Valentine’s, Good Luck and Congratulations), all made using cylinder and seed beads and Peyote stitch. The designs include step-by-step written instructions and photographic illustrations, along with more ideas so you can design your own little beaded celebrations. The techniques for making these miniature three-dimensional beaded cakes are demonstrated in video, so it is like having Katie in your own home teaching you personally. ‘Beaded Cakes in Miniature’ is perfect for all levels – beginners can learn how to work in three-dimensional Peyote stitch. More advanced beaders can set their imagination free to develop the designs suggested in the book and create their own versions.
Beaded Cakes in Miniature provided the inspiration that would lead Katie on to create one of the books for which she is best known: Sweet Treats. Some of the original designs that appeared in Sweet Treats can be seen in the gallery pages in Beaded Cakes in Miniature.
