Format: Paperback
If you can stand the waves of inspiration and delight, this is an absolute must-have addition to your beading library. Even non-beaders who appreciate seeing an incredibly broad range of well-executed and innovatively designed art will enjoy this book. Unlike another reviewer (whose "retread" remark surprised me), I felt this book had a huge selection of previously unpublished material -- and I have every issue of B&B and Beadwork and a lot of bead books, so I've seen a lot. I found the quality of work represented to be very high, and the range of uses for this medium to be delightfully astounding. This book is a true wealth of inspiration and beaded soul food!

Format: Paperback
I can't tell you how enjoyable this book is. With very, very few missteps (one or two beaders just don't belong in this book), it's a feast for ravenous eyes that satiates all beady hunger and leaves one in a state of bliss.

I've been beading since the Sixties, I'm good at it (more than one person has told me my work belongs in this book), and I am so, SO happy I own this lovely tome. You will be too. I've learned from looking, I've absorbed from seeing the works inside it, and I know it's enriched me in ways I will never even be aware of. Buy it! Now!

Format: Paperback
This book was purchased as a Christmas gift for my daughter, an accomplished beader. The book is for inspiration more than anything, because it is full of fantastic projects done by a variety of bead artisans. It is eye candy for beaders of all levels.

This book has so many wonderful pictures of beadwork that it is hard to put down. It is a source of inspiration.

A lot of the pieces are published here for the first time. Techniques and materials used in the construction of the beaded objects are briefly listed but this is not a how-to book.

Highly recommended to anyone who likes to bead or loves to look at contemporary beadwork.

Format: Paperback
I've seen many of these pieces in various beading magazines over the years but it's so nice to have them all in one place: pages and pages of inspiration and eye candy - you'll find jewelry, clothes, shoes, beaded objects of all sorts, sculpture and wall art. Fabulous color photos. If you love seed bead art work and jewelry, you'll love this book too.

I am new to beading and bought this book for ideas. Every page has a photo of the most amazing bead work. I would never have imagined the creativity of some of these artists. The photos are lovely.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Not only was I tickled to be chosen to have entries in this book, but it is one of the best works of eye candy for the beader around. The best part is that many many of the artists are not the big names who are seen in all publications. It's an inspiration each time I look through it.
