Table of Contents

Beads have been a fascinating method for embellishing fashion since ancient cultures sought personal adornment.

The twentieth century has seen some of the most innovative, colorful, and wonderful uses for beading as an enhancement in apparel, and, recently, beads have come into fashion as never before. Both vintage and recent costume are desirable, as much if not more, for their beading as for the overall design.

This lavishly illustrated book includes chapters on the history, techniques, preservation, and collecting of beads in the world of fashion. With 534 beautiful color photos, a detailed text, captions, value guide, index, and bibliography, it is the first to cover both vintage and recent costume and accessories in one volume.

Ranging from Fortuny and Mackie to anonymous designers, this volume will delight anyone in the field of fashion, as well as antiques and collectibles.
