Good, clear instructions and good diagrams,
This review is from: Creating Crystal Jewelry with Swarovski: 65 Sparkling Designs with Crystal Beads and Stones (Paperback)
This book is great.
On first glance the designs look complicated and a bit nightmarish but once you've mastered some basic skills such as bezzling (did it first time, no problem) you are able to visit a whole new world of beading.
I didn't find it difficult to find the beads in the UK. Another reviewer suggested that Charlottes were hard to find, specialised bead suppliers have them here in the UK. You probably won't find them in craft shops but any online decent bead shop has them. Also rivolis are not hard to find in the UK either.
I recommend this book to anyone looking to expand their beading repetoire without having to puzzle out complicated instructions (I have another book that was impossible to decifer with poor photos). It's a great book. Buy it now. :-)
