Very cute projects, just a little difficult to follow at times and I am an experienced beader. Would have liked directions to be a bit more clear. All worth it in the end though once you figure it out. Beaded boxes very beautiful!

A very good book for those who have prior experience. Would not recommend it for anyone just starting out. I did have a problem trying to download the free bead graphs thats included. I even went to the web site no luck, I tried to email her but her email account dont exist.
