Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Diane Fitzgerald's Shaped Beadwork & Beyond far exceeded my expectations. It's a comprehensive guide to creating designs with triangles, teardrops, beaded beads, bezels, and pointed ovals with a strong emphasis on peyote stitch using Japanese cylinder beads. Nearly fifty different designs are presented with clear, start-to-finish instructions and diagrams...The challenge will be deciding which one will be first.” —Leslie Frazier, Beadwork magazine 2012 Designer of the Year

This book has many projects to make and very clear instructions. The projects are all new (no carryover from Shaped Beadwork), and a wonderful mix of necklace, pin, bracelet and earrings projects for various ability levels. There's something in this book for everyone who loves peyote stitch and the art of beaded beads. I highly recommend it.

I was pleasantly surprised when I received this book. The illustrations are easy to follow, the photos are gorgeous, and the projects are well thought out. I am impressed!
