Editorial Reviews

Bead-Patterns: The Magazine
A beginner-friendly romp through the ways and wonders of seed beads. . . . Interesting projects for experienced beaders to play with too!
The Detroit News
A must-have.
Library Journal

Beginning and more advanced beaders will find helpful instruction in these two guides. Cypher (fashion, Marist Coll.; Hand Felted Jewelry and Beads: 25 Artful Designs) and Wedekind, both beadwork professionals, lead the reader through a series of practice projects for learning the stitches that form the basis for offloom work with small beads. The authors discuss small-beaded accessories and simple jewelry pieces as well as materials and equipment. Both of these basic books will find good use in public library collections.

    Excellent!

    This is a great book for beginners and serious beaders alike. Dustin easily explains his topics fluidly and in an interesting way. The illustrations and photographs are fantastic in both the physical book AND the e-book (I own both). Easy to use for referencing specific stitches/problems. This one is a keeper!
