Reviews - What do customers think about Beadwork Creates Beaded Beads: 30 Designs (Beadwork Creates series)?
Beautiful beads don't have to be difficult to make! Jan 21, 2008
This book shows you how to make embellished beads with simple and straightforward instructions. The pictures and descriptions are concise and easy to follow. Having a short attention span, I like to see success, if not completion, within a relatively short period of time. Projects that take me lots of time to create don't often get finished. The beads in this book are fairly quick to make, providing an inspiring foundation upon which your creativity can build. Who said that beautiful beads had to be fussy and difficult to make or require expensive materials?

I have a similar book, and only found one of the patterns of interest to me, however, someone who doesn't have a book on this subject might like it. I sent it back, since it duplicated a lot of things in my other book, and I felt it cost a lot considering the few projects it had.
For Experienced Beaders May 20, 2007
Nice pictures and interesting designs but this is for the more advanced beader. As a beginner, I've found most of the instructions impossible to follow.
Book Review: Beadwork Creates Beaded Beads Feb 10, 2007
I recommend this book to both "newbie" and experienced beaders! Ms. Campbell has done an excellent job assembling a variety of beaded bead projects. The projects are fun and the directions are straightforward. Some of the projects could use more illustrations, but overall, this is an excellent book for getting started! I am also pleased with how quickly this site.com delivered my order!
Beaded Beads Oct 24, 2005
Nice concise little book with 30 different styles of beaded beads. Well-illustrated, with pretty clear instructions. Some of the instructions could have been a little more detailed, and I would advise only for someone with some experience with the different stitches.
