New in Paper French beading is a simple yet lovely art, beautifully described here and illustrated in color with more than 70 close-up, how-to photos that show the intracacies of growing a garden of 30 flowers with delicate seed beads. Forty additional illustrations present the exact bead placement for each particular flower part. Just string the beads on wires and bend them into realistic, three-dimensional shapes; a helpful introductory section covers all the basics. You can indulge your creative passion almost anywhere--and the nicest thing is, they last forever. Construct a budding dogwood branch, frame a mirror with wisteria blooms, or make a holiday wreath of holly and gold-tipped pinecones. A gallery of vintage pieces illustrates the rich history of the craft.

Planning a wedding in the nineties is no easy task. It takes time, extensive legwork & a capacity for detail that makes you wish you had a full-time secretary, complete with computer, to handle it. And a wedding takes money. The average cost in the nineties will easily exceed $20,000--a lot to spend on a simple ceremony that's followed by a four or five hour party. This book will show you how to logically budget your wedding dollars (no matter what you have to spend,) & how to find clergy for an interfaith wedding. It will explain why the bride's family should not be saddled with the full expense of a wedding. It will instruct you on how to buy a wedding gown to suit your figure & wedding type--& ensure that it arrives on time. The book further reveals why fresh flowers are less expensive than "silks," & how you should properly word an invitation for a blended family. You will learn what to include in your contracts with bridal shops, caterers, photographers, florists & entertainers--in short, it will teach you how to be an educated consumer. FOR THE BRIDE is packed with all the information you'll need to plan the wedding of your dreams. It's the only bridal book you'll ever need to purchase. FOR THE BRIDE was created to be your guide to your wedding. Read it. Enjoy it. Refer to it often. FOR THE BRIDE was written for you! To order contact: JE House Publishing, Ltd., P.O.
