Wonderful BookUser Review - Overstock.com
I always learn from her books. She and Kummli share so much with starting beaders. Love it. This book,however, presented Sherry's way of doing something, then Heidi's way. Two diffrent artists way of doing the same thing. Loved that!!! Well worth buying. ...
Good but wanting more....User Review - Overstock.com
The book has great information but I was disappointed in the projects. I was expecting projects exploding with color but instead I thought they where somewhat dull, considering the magnificent work Sherry Serafini does. For me the gallery is the most exciting part of the book because it showcases the authors exquisite projects. Again, though I wish they had added more pictures. All in all though, a good purchase.
