A wealth of information and inspiration,

This review is from: Beaded Garden (Paperback)
This is a truly wonderful book. However there are two things that you need to be aware of. First - this is not a book for the absolute beginner. There are basic instructions for the different beading stitches at the back of the book but you I think that you would need a little previous beading knowledge. Second - there are no projects as such in this book. If you are looking for step-by-step instructions on how to make a particular necklace or bracelet then this book is not for you. What it does contain is detailed instructions on how to construct a range of flowers from daffodils to thistles simply using seed beads and thread. There are also instructions for a few insects to add a little humour to your work. All of this is accompanied by beautiful pictures of jewellery made using the techniques from the book. One of my particular favourites is the caterpillar necklace. All of the techniques described can be adapted to create many other flowers. Highly recommended.
