The Beaded Edge 2
"Add an exquisite touch to your work! A sequel to the best-selling book, The Beaded Edge, this guide teaches beaders and crocheteres alike how to add personal touches to a wide variety of fabric projects using gorgeous edges and embellishments. The Beaded Edge 2 explores Traditional Turkish oya, the delicate edgings for fabric--created using thread, knots, and beads. Designer Midori Nishida was fascinated by these edgings, and created a series of them based on traditional motifs of flowers, fruit, leaves and vines, and geometric designs such as scallops or stars. Step-by-step instructions for 18 edgings comprise the book, along with inspirational photos showing their use as trims for clothing, accessories, and home furnishing: everything from dresses, collars, pockets, cuffs, and hems; handbags, scarves, hats, and jewelry; and pillows, tablecloths, desk accessories, and kitchen linens. A section also discusses the history and traditions of Turkish oya. The Beaded Edge 2 combines rich Turkish traditions with diverse and captivating designs that you'll be proud to place on your pillow or around your wrist. "-- "Add the perfect bead-embellished touch to your designs with crocheted edges and trims"--

Both Beaded Edge 1 and Beaded Edge 2 are beautiful books. Delicate combinations of beads and crochet are used to trim a variety of objects. There is also information on the history of "oya" — Turkish Edging. If you've done beading from drawn diagrams, you would have no problem following the instructions. It would be helpful to know a little about how to crochet, but where there's a will, there's a way.
