This is a great book to add to your knitting library. The many different techniques for adding beads to projects are well explained complete with photos. The author gives a comprehensive overview of beads, sizing, and the types of beads to avoid problems. The projects range from simple to complex, however the techniques for the complex projects could be used on a simpler design of your own.
