    best beading book!

    This book has everything you want to know about making jewelry (as well as other items) from beads. I shows step by step instructions on different weaving techniques. Also included are blank design pages for the different weaves so you can make your own design. If you want a little of everything, then this is the book for you!

    Great Find!

    This is the best beading book ever! It has all types of beautiful projects -- more than your usual bead stringing--bead weaving, netting, knotting, jewelry, adornments, and all kinds of good stuff! I recommend it!
