This is the best beading book I have ever read (And I've read every one in my local library).
The designs are absolutely beautiful and look a lot more complicated than they actually are.
This book might not quite be for beginners, as a few of the patters require experience in beading and beadweaving, and can be pretty time-consuming.
I can't wait to get my hands on the other volumes!
I give it a 10 out of 10!
