Beautiful advanced beading book Dec 22, 2007
This book contains some gorgeous sead bead and crystal jewelry and is one of my favorite to page through. The color schemes used in the beading are just beautiful and provide wonderful inspiration. It is important to note that this book is probably not for a beginner, as the designs are intricate and may take some patience to complete.
The book begins with a gallery of photos of the jewelry designs. It includes over 50 rings, earrings, necklaces, and bracelets. There are also designs for elegant eyeglass and cell phone straps. The second section of the book begins with a short explanation of tools, supplies and findings and then continues with the instructions for all of the designs shown previously. A listing of supplies is provided for each project. One thing that makes this book a bit different than others I've seen is that the instructions include sketches instead of photos of the actual items. This is probably better since it is easier to show the stringing and crimping details in this format. Arrows next to the sketches point out where to crimp, where to hide ends, and what type of beads are used.
This is a wonderful book for the beader who wants to create beautiful crystal jewelry.
Missing Project Mar 18, 2007
I received my book and immediately got some crystals to make one of the rings, which I could not believe that I was able to start and finish in an hour, even when it was my first time making this type of jewelry. Sometimes the instructions can be somewhat confusing. And I notice that the instructions for PROJECT # 8 are nowhere to be found in the book. Still a great book to get if you want to learn new ways of making great pieces of jewelry and ideas.
a good book Jan 20, 2007
I think it's a good book. even for a first time beader.
Great book! Apr 8, 2006
This book has beautiful designs and ideas for your own jewelry creations. I have only tried one pattern so far, which was an easy one itself, with nice pictures to follow. The instructions can get a little confusing just by the way the designer states/words the directions. But overall I am satisfied with the book because I have the same taste in design.
