Rachel's beautiful jazz-inspired pieces for beaders range from the Rondo necklace with repeated patterns to the Five Piece Band stackable ring. There are 23 inventive and fun jewelry projects in the book. "Riff It" sidebars offer suggestions for personalizing each design. Rachel Nelson-Smith is a featured artist in the book Masters: Beadweaving . Other books in Lark Jewelry & Beading's Beadweaving Master Class series have been authored by Diane Fitzgerald, Marcia DeCoster, Laura McCabe, Sherry Serafini, and Maggie Meister.
