This is a remarkable book! It contains a wealth of information for beginners as well as challenging projects for the experienced. Each project is pictured in beautiful color. I appreciate the clear step-by-step instructions complete with pictures. The supply list is extremely helpful. Here are a few of my favorite designs in the book. It was hard to choose. I like the Classy Ceramic bracelet on pg 15. Always wanted to know how to string more than one strand. I like the memory wire jewelry. The rings on page 30 and 31 are so pretty. The black and copper necklace is a necklace that I see many young ladies wearing ones like it and may try to make it for my daughters. I love the Patina Donut Necklace. The directions are so clear that I think I could make a multi-strand necklace. I also love the Abalone shell ensemble. There is an informative section at the beginning of the book that explains the tools and materials used in bead work. This book is packed with projects and instructional techniques. This book has everything you need (except materials) to begin or expand your bead work hobby.
