10 of 10 people found the following review helpful By wiredweird HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on August 27, 2011
Format: Paperback
I'd really rather be able to sit down with my niece and show her how to use the tools, materials, and bits and pieces to make her own jewelry, and even to make her own findings. Geography makes that impossible, unfortunately. This book offers plenty that I would have shown her, though, and lots more besides.

Not surprisingly, the first chapter deals with the beads themselves. Although hardly encyclopedic, these 20 pages cover a wide range of materials available. After a brief section on design, the book gets into the part that I find most useful: materials, findings, and working with wire. Other sections, including stringing, stitching, and embroidery, don't interest me so much, but display the same thorough, well-illustrated, and very readable style seen elsewhere in this book. The section on making beads adds a whole dimension to the craft, ensuring complete uniqueness of the beaded creation. This includes a page or two on metal clay. It's the only source I've seen that recommends sintering metal clay with a torch instead of a kiln, making this fascinating material much easier to experiment with.

I hope it works well for her. The clarity of directions, breadth of topics, and range of styles give good reason to hope that it will. In fact, I almost don't want to send this to her - almost.

Helpful and I've been beading some beautiful items from the books inspiration. It's a bit advanced for beginners esp with the intricate weave beading but down the line as I grow it'll help me out for sure. Pretty pictures.
