Bought the book last weekend. Quite a good book to browse through when looking for motivation to make a new piece or re-work old ideas. I really like the way it showcased simple pieces and elaborate ones, too. Lovely to read on a breezy balcony or when facing your worktable and wondering what to make of the beads and wires at hand. One thing I do not like about it, however, is that it's a bit misleading. The book might have 1,000 entries but there are multiple entries for some pieces - some of which are not even crop highlighted but simply resized to fit in a page. To illustrate my point, the following item number pairs feature only one piece with two entries: 0026 & 0975 0027 & 0871 0051 & 0932 0250 & 0937 0287 & 0972 0391 & 0392 0424 & 0817 0512 & 0513 Now, don't get me wrong. I still think it's a good buy - I just don't like it when readers/buyers get all misled. Kudos to all those who have their pieces featured in the book. Each one is truly inspirational. And cheers to Sandra Salamony as well for getting all these pieces in her book. I just wish she didn't re-instate the misleading info by mentioning 1,000 pieces of jewelry in her acknowledgment.

About time a bead book with over a thousand pictures and no words....!!!,

I sampled this on my Nook thinking that having pocket inspiration would make this a good ebook purchase for me but the reality of 1-2" pictures fell short of my desires. I loved the variety of work I saw but will look for this in a non-electronic format. Beautiful and inspiring!

I just started playing around with jewelry making and just needed to get ideas. I thought it was a little expensive but a good buy if you are a beginner. A number of the other books I looked at before buying this one did not have as many pictures and were around the same price. It has some techniques in the back as well.
