4.0 out of 5 stars A Few More Strings of Beads 29 Jan 2004
If like me you are an avid beader, then this is definitely one you should have in your collection, from a very simple spiral cord, beaded links, daisy chains, right through to fringes,from the very simple to the more intricate victorian chain edging, it also gives you a brief insight into findings and beads, and the terms that the book uses. all in all a good all rounder for someone wanting a bit more, but not too much.

4.0 out of 5 stars Linear Thinking 24 Jun 2002
By Lisaea - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If you have an item that needs a handle to hold it, the pattern is in this book. If it is not, then with imagination, the starting point is in this book. If the item is weighty, a macrame strap may be the answer. Do you need leashes for your glasses? There are several patterns that will suffice. There are loomed and off loom straps as well as one that is made with a spool-knitter. If you have never beaded before, some of the straps require practice before starting, but many are able to be compleated on the first try. The diagrams could have been clearer, but they will suffice. All one needs is a bead supplier for the seed beads and thread and you're ready to give it a go.

5.0 out of 5 stars worth it for one pattern 30 Jan 2010
By Compulsively Creative - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
this book has patterns for beaded fringe, straps and chains. There are a couple of useful patterns, the best one being Diane Fitzgerald's "Caduceus" chain, aka figure 8 chain. A lot of the other patterns are VERY basic. If you've been beading for a while then you probably already know most of them.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great reference when you are looking for ideas.. 27 Aug 2011
By Michelle K. - Published on
I love love love chain stitches and the best thing about this book is the variety of techniques and styles. Everything from the simple to the complex is represented here.

All the basics are covered like daisy chains and herringbone ropes and a few beauties you just wont see other places like Diane Fitzgeralds Caduceus Chain which is well worth the purchase of the book alone in my opinion.

The fringe designs are a nice bonus to help spur some inspiration and cover all the basic fringe designs in one place as well.

Overall if you are looking for a quick reference guide to chains and fringes to work into a project or use alone this is a great addition to your beading library. I use it a lot. This booklet is a great resource when you just dont know what you want to do. LOL

It's very basic. And I would call it more of a technique book than a pattern book. If you have any experience beading you probably know all or most of these things already. But if you can get it for the normal price of a pattern from Interweave it's worth it just for the Diane Fitzgerald Caduceus Chain.

A small book with 32 projects outlined. Several variations to try that I have never seen before. Beadwork is a good magazine that I subscribe to, but I have not seen most of these patterns.
