    Excellent Cube Stitching Book

    A wonderful new book that focuses on cube bead stitching! It is well-organized and illustrated, making following the instructions easy to do. I like that color variations are shown, as well as size variations on some designs. The projects are realistic to make, without investing a huge amount of time or money on supplies. Projects of different skill levels are included, making this a good resource for the beginner as well as the more advanced beader. This will be a permanent part of my beading library!

    Pretty projects with cubes, that are basically plays on seed bea

    Pretty projects with cubes, that are basically plays on seed bead patterns, slightly revamped to accommodate cubes. The "introduction" put me off. There is a long diatribe about intellectual property, etc. etc. It was so endless, I am surprised it didn't come with a binding legal contract. That doesn't bring in cash, though. Since I make jewelry for sale, I didn't want this book influencing my design esthetic. Fine for the hobbyist. I sent my copy (which I purchased sight unseen) to Goodwill.

    Highly Recommended

    There are so many beautiful pieces presented in this book and the instructions are easy to follow, even for a beginner like myself. I'm looking forward to completing some pieces that are really "classy" to add to my personal collection.
