1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 21 Aug 2009
I bought this book thinking it was going to show techniques that people had passed on (obviously didn't read it properly). It turned out to be a great disappointment. Each page displays a piece of work made by an artist - most of which I also found un-inspiring. This is accompanied by a short paragraph or even a sentence where they try and sum up what their artistic mentor passed on to them. This profound snip of information is given in both French and English. Loads of pretentious pages with no substance.

I packaged this back up and returned it the same day.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fabulous Book, 21 Aug 2009
I've done quite a few of the flowers from this book now and all have turned out beautiful. They all seem to look far better in the beaded flesh too. I can't recommend this book highly enough. I have another on French beaded flowers and they just don't compare. Like someone before me has said, there's load of scope for creating other kinds of flowers. Wonderful!
