Faerie Lights/Sawyer, Jillia/Paper/0958528233/S038-G
Faerie Lights broke all records for sales to the US stained glass industry in 1996 and has been a consistent top seller in both this market and the craft sector ever since.
From Xaniane, crystal warrior, to Whisper, princess of innocence, these fairies are designed to enchant. Aeolean, the wind dancer, and Peace, the keeper of the opening buds, will draw you into their world and carry you away to a land where Faeries will always exist. You will find fairies posing with flowers, mushrooms, seashells and bubbles.
Also included with each design is a verse by Jillian, which further enhances the personality and the magic of these delightful creatures and takes you into the wonderful world that is Jillian SawyerÆs imagination. Her choice of the archaic spelling æfaeriesÆ reminds us of the centuries old relationship people have with these mystical creatures.
Not only are JillianÆs designs exquisite in their detail and their beauty, they are also technically refined for working with stained glass and are amazingly fluid and full of life given the constraints of designing for this medium. Included with each of the 24 designs are tips for construction and, as most of JillianÆs designs are quite intricate, towards the back of the book the beginner will find the more simplified Faeries of the Field.
With full colour examples and line drawings for each design, this book is an inspiration to all craftspeople who, although proficient at their craft, find designing a challenge. JillianÆs line drawings are perfect patterns for crafts such as quilting, appliquÚ, machine or hand embroidery, mosaics, card making, ceramics, glass, silk or china painting. In fact, theyÆre ideal for any craft requiring defined segments for each change of colour or texture.
Faerie Lights also makes a wonderful coffee table book or gift for those of us who simply love fairies.
