Great book Jan 10, 2008
I really like the book and the instructions look great. My only complaint is that I'm having trouble finding the beads 3-cut and 6-cut beads. Also having a lot of trouble finding the wire she recommends.
If anyone has a suggestion I would really like to know where online or in Oakland I can purchase the supplies for these flowers.

A Lovely Book But..... Apr 27, 2007
I buy just about every Beaded Flower book that comes along and have some rare older ones. Also I have been beading florals in tiny beads for about 4 years. While this is a beautifully photographed book and the diagrams for instructions are very well done, I find that the recommendations for wire gauges for these compositions is to light to provide long enduring work. If you want to use this book, substitute her recommended 30 gauge wire for 26 gauge wire and 28 gauge wire depending on the weight and placement of your components. If you are going to spend hours of time creating beautiful beaded work, it should be of a construction that will provide you and your loved ones with many years if not a life time of enjoyment. 30 gauge wire will not do the job.
