Reviews - What do customers think about Beading in the Native American Tradition?

Outstanding publication  Aug 12, 2008
This book contains some very useful information and "how to's" on researching and creating/re-creating Native American beading projects.
The illustrations are first rate and it is well written.
A "must have" for someone that is considering delving into the world of Native American beading.
Beautifully Beaded Work  Oct 29, 2006
If you love American Indian beadwork, here's a good book for you. There are chapters on the history of beadwork in America, researching native American beadwork and collecting it.
Other chapters cover lane-stitch beadwork, loom beadwork, applique beadwork, gourd stitch and Comanche brick stitch, uncommon beadwork techniques, beaded edgings and finishing techniques, and patterns. He actually shows how to make different looms (tension loom, box loom, and heddle loom).
I can't vouch for the patterns and ease of following the directions, as my interest was in the historic beadwork. Simply beautiful!
There's a chapter on tools, materials and buying beads.
The color photos show projects and also antique beaded pieces from museums and collections.
Wonderful Book  Dec 10, 2005
There are many great examples in this book. The pictures are wonderful and I feel it is well worth the money spent.
Beading in the Native American Tradition  Sep 3, 2005
A wonderful resource for historic accuracy of Native Beaded Pieces of Art.
I recommend the library first...  Jul 5, 2004
When possible, I take a book out of the library before I buy it. Hey, 3-6 weeks of free review, can't beat that. Anyway, I would recommend getting this book, but at a discounted price (from here or another online source). If you are like me and do beading as a craft, I personally I found some of the photos and diagrams quite helpful, but some of the instructions and other diagrams were a little hard to follow. If nothing else, you can get design ideas from it! I would rate parts of the text as moderately helpful, depending on your interest level.
