Each of the thirteen techniques is explained in detail then demonstrated with projects to practice and improve your beading skills and knowledge. --Beadworkers Guild Journal, Jan 08

Format: Spiral-bound Verified Purchase
This is a lovely book filled with beautiful clearly illustrated projects and techniques. It will help you with the basics and inspire you when you're feeling jaded. The book is spiral bound. Consequently, it lies flat when you are working from it. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes and wants to master off-loom beadwork.

I have been beading for years, generally using kits or following designs in books and magazines, but never really understanding how different beading stitches work and can be put together to make projects. I have been searching for a book that would teach me the ins and outs of beadwork so that i could create my own pieces, and this is that book. It is wonderfully written and illustrated, and even though i have now completed all of the projects in the book, i still dip into it as a refresh my memory when i am beading. Hand felted jewellery by Carol, is also a must have.

I am fairly new to beading and this book has everything I need. The instructions and diagrams and crystal clear and the projects are absolutely gorgeous. I cannot wait to get started :-)

It's also a great idea to have the book spiral-bound, as it lies flat when you are trying to follow the instructions.

A perfect book for beaders everywhere.

Mastering Beadwork is an excellent book. One of the books I look at most. It seems to cover nearly every stitch there is including peyote stitch, dutch spiral, netting, spiral rope, right-angle weave, triangle weave, square stitch, daisy chain, ladder stitch, herringbone stitch, brick stitch, and even crochet. Each section has various projects clearly illustrated with other suggestions for variations. Carol Huber Cypher's enthusiams for beading shines through each page. Here is just a taste of some of the projects you can make: band of triangles bracelet; bookend beaded beads; starry night card case; peppered netted rope; flaming cocktail ring; classically feminine pearl collar.

This book is just what I have been looking for. Some books/ kits call the designs by other names. Maybe they are trying to be creative, or just imply that the designs are of their own making. This book just calls the designs by straight forward names that describe them perfectly. A simple book that clearly describes how each design is constructed and how it can be adapted.

It is inspirational...and I want more.

The best beading book I have purchased so far. So many techniques are covered and the instructions are very clear and easy to follow. As a beginner I have made several of her projects quite successfully and find she is the book I refer to most.

Slightly mind boggling but then again beading is not that simple anyway. Has a wide range of differing kinds of beading. Practice makes perfect. I am more of a visual person so would probably benefit from being shown how to do some of the projects rather than trying to just read the instructions.

This is the first beading book I have purchased although I have some experience with making beaded bracelet using the spiral stitch and netted stitch but I found this to be a hard read. I didn't like the diagrams and found the instructions quite hard to follow as I had to keep referring back to previous pages making it a long process. Perhaps I am taking bad to reading instructions as I have been using video tutorials up to now. I will persevere with this book as there are some nice projects.
