This book has many projects to make and very clear instructions. The projects are all new (no carryover from Shaped Beadwork), and a wonderful mix of necklace, pin, bracelet and earrings projects for various ability levels. There's something in this book for everyone who loves peyote stitch and the art of beaded beads. I highly recommend it.
I was pleasantly surprised when I received this book. The illustrations are easy to follow, the photos are gorgeous, and the projects are well thought out. I am impressed!
