Editorial Reviews

The Bead Bugle
The first publication devoted entirely to all the options for adding finishing touches to your beadwork, Findings & Finishings is the resource guide for every beader and jewelry maker.
Needle Arts
An excellent reference and invaluable aid to designing outstanding original jewelry.
Library Journal
Beaders who have discovered the whole world of wonderful beads available to them now have an equally wonderful selection of findings to dress up their creations. Findings, the little rings, clasps, spacers, and pins that hold jewelry together and make it wearable, are the final embellishment on the beadwork piece. Bateman (The Morning Rose) describes purchased and handmade findings and gives instructions for applying them to bead jewelry. The section on clasps is particularly good. A gallery of finished pieces by jewelry artists is included. This is a good practical guide for public libraries. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
School Library Journal
Adult/High School-A great resource for anyone interested in making beaded jewelry. Its focus, to be sure, is exploring the options and techniques for finishing projects, but it goes much further than that. Bateman includes a brief history of jewelry and an excellent overview of the basic tools and materials involved in making beaded jewelry. Beautiful photographs and sketches in color illustrate the detailed explanations and instructions. Suitable for beginners and experienced crafters, the projects range from simple earrings to intricately stitched bracelets. The wealth of information and easy-to-follow layout will appeal to any beadworker.-Christine Jones, Fairfax County Public Library, VA Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
