Reviews - What do customers think about Beginner's Guide to Beadwork (Beginner's Guide to)?
Great book for beginners, inspiring for more advanced beaders. Jul 9, 2008
Madeleine Rollason has done a gorgeous job with this book. There are a lot of great books for beginning beaders, with different sorts of projects. This one is fantastic, it's got a lot of different projects, all very clearly photographed and illustrated and well explained. It covers all the basic stitches and has projects to go with them that aren't intimidating and turn out gorgeous. One of them, the peyote stitched choker done in flat peyote with fringe is one I'm planning on doing. It's simple enough to be done quickly, and has enough area and flexibility for design I can make it something that's uniquely mine. For me, that's the best sort of project, something I can develop my own ideas from, and this book is full of the techniques you'll need to do just that. It's 64 pages, all in color, and it's a great book for a beginner.
Looking for basics only May 31, 2005
Short and straight to the point... tells about types of beads, stiching, right-angle weave and gives very simple projects. It's only a warm up. For somebody who has never done any beadwork, this is an excellent intro.
Beginner's Guide to Beadwork Jul 22, 2004
As the title suggests this book is geared to the beginner. And, the photographs of the beadwork are absolutely stunning! Many photograhs are used to illustrate the techniques and projects which are more helpful than the usual diagrams used in many books on the subject. Techniques include: bead stringing, netting, peyote, brick, right-angle weave, and herringbone stitches. Although the projects given are simple for the beginner, the author also gives more advanced variations for some of the projects(such as the bracelet shown on the cover). Overall, this is a good, basic book for learning beadweaving, but, given it's price, would also serve as a useful addition to the advanced beader's library.
