Details: Beaded Miniatures: A Victorian Family & Furniture is one of a set of two books designed to complement each other. This book contains all the patterns and directions needed to make a family and furniture in 1/48th scale. (((These patterns are also available as individual PDF download patterns on my website: http://sheilaroot.com ))) The second book, Beaded Miniatures: A Queen Anne House (sold separately), contains the patterns and directions for making a Queen Anne style house from the 1890-1910 era. (((There is also a Victorian Cottage version of the house available on my website as a PDF download file: http://sheilaroot.com )))The furnishings in this book are designed to fit the Queen Anne house, however they could also be used in a shadowbox display or other dollhouse of the same scale. The family includes mother, father, and daughter. Furniture is included for the hall, parlor, bedroom, and child’s room, plus accessories such as lamps, picture frames, and table top accessories. Peyote stitch is used for most of the patterns, plus a little brick stitch and ladder stitch. The people are made with seed beads in sizes 15/0, 11/0 and 8/0, plus a 4-5mm round bead for their heads. The furniture uses Japanese cylinder beads (shown with Delicas) for the case pieces, 15/0 seed beads for the fabrics, plus some 11/0 and 8/0 seed beads for legs and feet. The accessories use a variety of seed beads, glass beads, and metal findings. The lamps also use wire or a headpin, and the holiday tree needs one piece of wire. Both diagrams and word charts are included. The instructions are detailed with written explanations, and over 300 color photographs and diagrams to clarify all directions. Basic instructions for peyote and brick stitch are not included, however instructions are given for any less-familiar techniques or those specific to this book. This is NOT a beginner project; however, it can be as big or as small as you would like. Make all the pieces in the book or only make a few. Each one goes fairly quickly. Just make a few pieces for a shadowbox or make them all and the house to put them in.
