Reviews - What do customers think about Netted Beadwork: A Beadwork How-To Book (Beadwork How-To)?

Good primer for netting  Jul 9, 2008
I've been a fan of Diane Fitzgerald's almost since I started beading, and so it came as no surprise that this book was really fantastic, inspiring, and gorgeous. What did surprise me was how inspiring it was. It starts with a lovely gallery and history of netted beadwork around the world. From China to Egypt with beautiful pictures and text to explain a bit about the pictures.
From there it goes into a project section with well written, and beautiful projects. It never fails to amaze me what all can be done in netting, and this book has such wonderful examples and instructions. It explains the different forms netting can take, and shows very well the possibilities within this fast working technique. There are projects to inspire anyone, and the diagrams are clear and easy to understand, it's a great book for beginners just learning how to bead, and an inspiring book for more advanced beaders who want to learn a few more techniques to add to the repertoire. The great thing about netting for new beaders is that it's fairly simple to learn, for more advanced reader, the great thing is the nearly instant gratification of a netted project.
I think what inspires me the most is the very loose, very organic looking random netting,it's a lot like freeform peyote in the manner it's constructed.It's shown in a few different ways so you can really get an idea of how you can use it in your own designs to create something completely new.
I'm so impressed with this book, it's definately in my personal top 5 books list.
Netted Beadwork  Aug 23, 2007
I ordered the book and it will be great for new beader's. It's worth buying. It shows you how to net the rows and then use your own iders.
Maybe Nets Aren't My Thing  Jan 12, 2007
The book is fine, I just get frustrated when I have difficulty with the techniques.
Good Directions - Limited Projects  Aug 13, 2005
Very detailed directions for all sorts of netting; if you can't learn from this book, you won't learn at all. However, there are only a few specific projects included so you need to be able to take the basics from this book and use your own imagination and creativity to actually produce jewelry, home decor objects and the like. The photos of netted objects from all cultures are facinating; there is even a netted window valance!
Good How to on netted beadwork  Oct 10, 2004
I've tried other method of "beaded beads" but the method outlined in this book is the simplest yet. I've been carrying a small container of beads with me on airplanes and make one beaded bead in about an hour. I haven't tried anything else in the book, but Diane offers plenty of inspiration.
