Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Directions for seven jewelry projects (rings, necklaces, and bracelets) are prefaced by seventeen pages of history, terminology, basic bead shapes and sizes, a discussion of findings (clasps), and tools and supplies. Valuable for the beginning beader are directions for determining how many beads you need and how to plan out your designs before beginning. Projects are made from purchased items and feature an appealing and kid-appropriate design with enough dignity to appeal to adult readers, as well. In the hands of the motivated reader, this book is a good introduction and one of the few books available on beading. A glossary, website, and index are included. 2005, Abdo, Ages 10 to 14.
