There is one way in which this book does excell. For people who prefer to learn pictorially this is a great book for you. Each technique used is shown in clear and easy to follow diagrams, however only the very basic techniques are used so not all of tchniques that are used in French Beaded Flowers are shown.
Another sore point for me with this book, other than the very repetitive use of a few flowers and not covering all of the techniques, was that some of the arrangements and flowers that were my favourite in photos at the front of the book were not in the patterns!! For all of those wanting to make the bouquet on the front of the book yes, it is in the patterns.
On a positive note it is a great book for ideas and the patterns I have done from this book are all stunning.
