When I was 14-15 years old, I made and sold my own beaded jewelry, mostly crocheted bead ropes and rings. I even had an account with Hatch's Card and Gifts in the local mall, where I'd go replace any sold jewelry every week. The pattern instruction booklet that started me off on my first business venture was this one: Pearls: Fun & Fancy, by Shirley Nowosad.

The book is copyrighted 1971 and published by The Royal-Craft Library, Cunningham Art Products. It's 31 pages and has patterns, diagrams, and complete instructions for 35 beaded jewelry items using imitation pearls and other beads. There are several styles of crocheted bead rope necklaces and bracelets, some with woven-in designs like flowers and grapes, others using different styles and size of beads. Also earrings, those funky metallic elastic crochet cluster rings, collars and chokers, an anklet with toe ring, and an ornamental necktie. The booklet is in good vintage condition with no writing or tears.
