Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Serafini’s graphic design and fine art skills shine in brilliant color in this book of breathtaking jewelry art that is part instruction and part inspiration. Exquisite pieces dazzle with an aesthetic that is regal yet whimsical. . . . Casual browser and serious artisan will enjoy the images of finished pieces as well as the photos of some of Serafini’s more elaborate work." —Booklist   "When I think of bead embroidery, Sherry Serafini usually comes to mind. Her excellent choices of materials, precise stitching, and overall knock-out creations are inspiring to say the least. If you are familiar with embroidery, this book is set up for you to jump right in, but a motivated beginner shouldn't have any trouble following the clear instructions either." —Bead & Button
