All other books feature pearls, but this one has them as its focus. It also includes some wirework and beading projects, so isn't limited to stringing. We really liked all the extra information, quotes, tips, anecdotes and facts sprinkled throughout the book. So if you're looking for something more than a simple, single strand pearl necklace then this book is for you. --Bead, Dec 07/Jan 08
