Product Description

Share

My book, ‘Sweet Treats: A collection of designs for beaded jewellery and gifts that will make your mouth water!’, was published on 1st November 2012. Sweet Treats is my first self published book under my own publishing label, Tregellas Publishing.

The book features 15 designs to make a range of Sweet Treats. These include: Twinkies & Suzy Qs, Battenburg Cake, Swiss Roll, Chocolate Dipped Strawberries, Donuts, Victoria Sponge, Chocolate Eclairs, Blackforest Gateau, Chocolate Chip Cookies, Jam Tarts, Bakewell Tarts, Cupcakes, Simnel Cake, Fondant Fancies and Gingerbread Men.

Each design gives ideas and instructions for multiple projects. These include necklaces, bracelets, earrings, key rings, fridge magnets and ornaments.

Technical Information

Sweet Treats is A4 in size, with 104 pages in full colour. Each design is accompanied with beautiful colour photographs and diagrams to illustrate the beading techniques.

Techniques include Peyote stitch and Brick stitch. The book assumes knowledge of these stitches. However, it does include an introductory section covering a basic guide to beading and to the stitches used in the book. You will also learn about the materials you need for the projects. So, if you are quite new to beading, all this information will help.

The Story Behind Sweet Treats

Sweet Treats will always be very special to me. It began as a development of the miniature beaded cakes I had started designing in 2009. Along the way I began asking friends for suggestions for cakes that they would like to see made in beads.

Each cake includes its own story. So, sometimes this is a history of its development. Or, maybe a special association with a particular friend. I designed Sweet Treats in the style of a recipe book. So, each project has a list of beaded ingredients and mouth-watering photos to tempt you to make these fun designs.

    It arrived a week ago and What a lovely book, I feel the urge to bake 🙂 I have ordered some ingredients and then it will be difficult to choose what to start with. I want to do them all. I can highly recommend this book.

    The book arrived and it is a true delight. The projects are mouth-watering and the tidbits of information on the sweets themselves were very interesting. I especially like the introductory parts on the different types of peyote, etc – the directions are very clear and large. I am glad I took advantage of your sale to offset the postage.

    I love this book! The instructions are great and the designs “delicious.” Right now I’m working on the donut (my first project from the book) and having a lot of fun. Has anyone tried using 3mm bugle beads for the sprinkles? Do you think they would not be in scale with the size of the donut?
    Thanks for the great book, Katie!
