I really enjoyed everything about this book. It is full of information about beading. Her writing style makes the text interesting. The directions are written in a clear and concise manner and is coupled with very easy to follow graphics for every project and technique. The photographs are outstanding closeup additions to every page. They provide inspiration for making your own designs. The format of the book makes finding what you are looking for quick and easy. The gallery in the back of the book showcases some of Marcia DeCoster's work as well as the work of other artists. I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in learning about right angle beading. I love this book.

Marcia DeCoster's Beaded Opulence is a comprehensive illustration of the diversity of Right Angle Weave. The projects are beautiful and well illustrated, starting with easier, basic items and graduating to more involved pieces. A must have for any beaders library.

This book makes you want to sit down and bead. The projects are beautiful and unusual. Many of the designs have the look of fine jewelry, and many of the elements will transfer into your own designs. Right angle weave is versatile and not difficult to do, making these pieces something most beaders can do without getting upset with their skill level.

There are so many unusual pieces shown within this book and I'm really looking forward to completing a few "rope" necklaces myself. I'm a beginner and although the pieces are a little more complicated, the instructions included will allow me to complete my pieces with confidence.
