Lark Crafts offers a new volume for beaders who have progressed beyond the basics to an intermediate or advanced skill level. Twenty projects by recognized bead-embroidery artists show readers how to make earrings, necklaces, bracelets, and other adornments. Many of the featured designers have written books and are known for their ability to teach master classes, exhibit, and sell their work. The material is presented with step-by-step instructions, a supply list, illustrations, and close-up color photographs. Gallery images of items by each artist provide additional creative inspiration. Comparable to Marcia DeCoster's Marcia DeCoster Presents: Interviews with 30 Beaders on Inspiration & Technique, this work showcases unique pieces of art that employ imaginative blends of bead embroidery and woven beading stitches and may incorporate pearls, semiprecious stones, shells, ribbon, leather, and found objects. A helpful section covers standard beading techniques. VERDICT This work provides creative ideas and beautiful projects. The wide range of styles presented, including Victorian, art deco, modern, classic, and fusions of these, will appeal to a variety of tastes.—Deborah Broocker, Georgia Perimeter Coll. Lib., Dunwoody
