Ms. Cloud teaches bead embroidery from scratch until it's embedded in one's memory, love all her books.
Jamie Cloud Eakin has once again hit one out of the park! This beautiful book can stand alone as a guide for thoughtful bead embroidery, but I believe if used in conjunction with her other two books (a trilogy of sorts) you will be fully versed in the spectacular and potentially immense art of bead embroidery. This is a great addition to any beader's arsenal of go-to books. Bravo!
