Product Description

Review

Rocailles (or seed beads) are those tiny beads that come in every color and finish. They are ubiquitous, being found for sale in all kinds of unlikely places and thus the most easily available type of bead. These are the building blocks for many of the world's varieties of traditional beadwork, and here they are made into what the author rightly describes as "tiny treasures". This is a lovely book, and when I look back at the end of the year it will still be one of my favorites I am sure. As well as being a user-friendly guide to making these bead and wire charms it is also beautifully and imaginatively laid out. Basically, this is a book showing how to make beaded charms in the shape of flowers, insects, storybook characters, festival decorations, animals and more. Use them to adorn jewelry, garments, the pages of scrapbooks and cards and as they are easy you are sure to be able to make your own up too after making a few. The book starts by giving a basic guide to rocailles and the tools you will need to get crafting (not very many). There is a double page spread on how to work the basic technique shown very clearly and directly as well as how to assemble more complex pieces. As with most Search Press books there is a guide to using the book and projects are grouped in themes as well as graded for difficulty, all beads and materials given as well as a nice clear diagram showing what to do. All this is perhaps enough, but the best thing for me is the layout of the pattern selector pages. Each has a theme (bug's world, in the garden, nature trail, Happy Christmas, once upon a time etc) and the relevant charms are laid out against a glorious background of fabric stitched down and embellished with hand and machine embroidery. This needs to be seen to be appreciated, and truly brings the work to life as well as giving inspiration for memory album projects, cards and applique fabric items. At the back are a few pages giving ideas for the charms' use; these also have these stitched backgrounds. Make jewellery, cards, drink markers, charm bracelets, decorate clothing etc. There is also a list of stockists if you live in the UK, US, Australia or New Zealand and by the time you come to the last page (index) you ought to be feeling thoroughly inspired to create something.-Myshelf.com ...a collection of teeny projects that include a wide variety of designs to use for all occasions. Each one has a template and pattern so a resourceful stitcher can use them to bead directly onto fabric or use needle and thread rather than wire to create an array of beaded decoration.-New Stitches Crammed with irresistible beaded delights from fuchsias, butterflies and strawberries to champagne and cafe treats. With something for all experience levels, plus tips on how to incorporate the designs into finished projects, along with helpful diagrams and lovely imagery throughout, these pages are a beader's paradise.-Creative Beads & Jewellery Beads are perfect for making tiny treasures and this book will show you how to make everything from a tiny tea service and minute flowers to the sweetest little ladybird. No matter what your level of beading experience, you're sure to find the perfect project. The techniques guides, from basic construction to more advanced techniques, mean that you'll be helped every step of the way. After you've created your beaded piece, author Amanda Hinson shows you how to incorporate it into other projects including jewellery, accessories and home decor.-Simply Homemade

Considering the amazing things that can be done with beads and wire, most of the patterns in this book are pretty useless. Many patterns are just too small, and many when seen out of context (ie on a keyring or on jewellery as suggested in the book) will just confuse people as it is not obvious what they are.

There are one or two nice patterns - a couple of flowers and a princess and prince charming that may actually be useful. That is how it has managed to earn 2 stars.

I would not recommend this book and am on the look out now for a much better book, with patterns for things I will actually want to make.

Lovely clear pictures and diagrams. Not so much a bead weaving technique it is based more on French beading which uses wire. Easy and small projects which take up little time. I made some of the christmas things which turned out really well.

I was a bit disappointed with the items shown in this book as they were not what I was expecting. They are all made using 30 gauge wire, which you can see throughout the beadwork, which detracts from the finished article. I also thought that some of the proportions were a bit out of sync with the overall size of the object being made, usually too long and thin to be appealing. This might work better using thread and be more suited to an older child as some of the offerings, in my opinion, look a bit amateurish. There are, however, one or two creations that I might attempt to make and, with some redesigning, others might work and be more pleasing.

On the positive side, the book is crammed with items to make and many would make fun dangles for handbags and glass charms.

An excellent book. After constantly renewing the same one at the local library, I decided to purchase this item. The cheapest price was from Amazon.
The directions are very precise and clear.
