This book offers the best overview of different bead traditions with projects that a beginner can do. I've never seen a book like it. It was really inspiring to me.
A far more accurate title would be "The Basic Guide to Some Beading Techniques". Brick, Ladder, and Square stitches are fairly detailed, with written instructions and diagrams. Bead crochet and knitting have a minor amount of written instructions. Bead embroidery has virtually no instructions, but wastes a full page to a diagram showing the layout for a bead fringe, i.e. strung beads (page 119).Most of the projects with instructions are pretty, but are things that intermediate to advanced beaders have, probably, already done. The best part of this book are photos of some gorgeous beadwork, but there aren't instructions in the book for these creations. I was an advanced beader when I purchased this book, and I did not garner any new knowledge from it.I strongly recommend checking this book out from a library before you purchase it. I wish I had.
