I have to say I just love this book!! The instructions are very detailed with diagrams and the variations and embellishments are just endless. The designs cover a great variety of styles and if you are a seasoned beader this is a great way to learn new stitches without having to commit to weeks on a single project. I often find myself working on a project that takes weeks to complete and this is awesome for something you can just sit down and finish for a good break. And these are just sooooo fun!! I have made 2 pinata beads that are totally different using different sizes and crystals versus seeds. So get this book and just let your imagination run! Definitely worth the money!

This is not a new book, and looks mildly dated. But don't let this put you off as it is a gem of a book.  The projects may not be for those new to beading, and thank heavens, are not jewellery biased, as so many other books, but are simply for the glory of different techniques. A much-thumbed favorite!

I love all of the different beaded designs in this book. Being a beginner, I had a little bit of difficulty understanding the patterns, but once I got the hang of it I loved it! Would definately recommend this book to others!
