Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Herringbone, or Ndebele stitch, is one of the most popular beadwork techniques, largely thanks to its versatility. In each section of this guide, Barta (editor, Beadwork magazine; Mastering Peyote Stitch) explores one basic style of herringbone stitch—flat, circular, tubular, or twisted—starting with an overview of basic techniques and variations. Diagrams marked with the thread path are included, as are text-based instructions. This overview is followed by a selection of jewelry projects that showcase the technique. Jewelry makers familiar with the style of the projects in Beadwork magazine won't be surprised by the arrangements in this collection, which are showpieces incorporating a variety of accent, colorful glass, and precious metal seed beads. While this is an excellent guide to herringbone stitch, most of the projects also incorporate other stitches, such as right-angle weave or peyote stitch. A very quick overview of the additional stitches is included in an appendix, but beginners may have a tough time with the plans. VERDICT Melissa Grakowsky's I Can Herringbone may be a better choice for novice jewelry makers who want herringbone-specific projects.
