5.0 out of 5 stars Beadwork 10 Jan 2007
This excellent book should become the beading beginners bible. All the basics are covered with exciting projects with diagrams that are clear and easy to follow. The different types of beads/sizes,so confusing to the beginner are clearly defined along with all the accessories required to complete your project. This book is a must have. Happy beading.

5.0 out of 5 stars A practical guide 11 Jan 2007
Despite the rather dull and uninspiring cover this is a really great book.

The various techniques for beading are covered in clear and simple language, and are illustrated with large colour photographs. Consequently, you can actually see what you should be doing.

If you've ever wanted a clear explanation of peyote or brick stitch

(to name but two of the comprehensive range of stitches and techniques in this volume) then I would recommend you buy this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 3 Aug 2009
Great book with numerous clear photos and informative text. Have bought one copy for my mother, who is a fairly experienced beader but still likes to have a book to refer to for some techniques, and one for a friends wife and daughter, who are novices. All find the book extremely useful and easy to follow.
