    great variety of projects for beginning & advanced beaders

    After checking out this book from the local library several times, I decided it was time to order my own copy. Not only did I learn to construct the projects in the book but they're easy enough to change and alter to fit my personal tastes. I've received numerous compliments and even had an admirer buy a necklace made from this book right off my body!

    A Must for your Beading Library

    This book is by far a must for a beaders library. Beautiful Pictures and great diagrams. Some of the projects are for the more advanced beader but the diagrams for each stitch are helpful to the beginning beader. I refer to this book time and time again and have learned many new stitches and techniques.

    What a find! Great Photos!

    This book is definitely more advanced than most bead books I've seen. You can tell by the attention to details in the text as well as the photos throughout the book that this book had a lot of time and effort put into it! Well worth the money to any bead-weaver! Happy Beading!!!

    Love it!!

    I absolutely love this book. It is beautiful and inspiring. It does seem to be for someone who isn't just starting out with beading though. But I think that anyone will be motivated to start right away with this book.
