There are some nice pieces of jewelry and artwork to be made out of this book. This book does not make me want to run to the store to pick up the beads, but there are some nice patterns to make. I will make them up in the future. The book is full of patterns - no storyline. All about beading. Read full review

A mixed bag of jewelry designs and embellishing with beads. A crafty look to the book as some of the projects use feathers, sequins, plastic discs, ribbons and the making of paper beads. Read full review
