When I first saw this book advertised, I was on-the-fence as to whether or not I should get a copy for myself. I love designing multistrand necklaces and have worked hard to perfect the drape of necklaces within my collection. In fact, nearly all of my recent work has been in designing multistrand pieces. There has been little information available that could have helped me during my own trials and tribulations in the design process. Nevertheless, I felt I could always learn something and perhaps find a new method to aid in my future pieces. Well I just got this book two days ago and it has already paid for itself, particularly in solving a couple of my own design techniques/problems. A fair portion of the book encompassed practices that I already was well versed in and yet provided me a couple of variations that I could use in a pinch. Most of the "Projects" provide the common steps in a quick, very brief fashion and highlights the more complex design portions more thoroughly. Each "Project" has a box entitled "Secrets for Success" that contain information aiding in designing multistrand jewelry - bracelet and necklaces - and to provide potential for your own ideas/designs. The projects are trendy and doable for anyone, yet if you are not skilled in basic jewelry production then this would not be a good book to start with when developing your own work. Some of the suggested tools are a must (in my opinion) and greatly aid when desiring the perfect necklace drape. I would have loved to see additional designs as multistrand work is so varied that this could have evolved into a 300+ page book, instead of the short 86 pages. This book comes from the publisher of BEAD STYLE magazine, a must for those interested in getting six great issues of the latest in jewelry design of the times.

This book has good ideas for jewelry combinations of beads with chain. For someone who has some basic knowledge of bead stringing, there are great photos as well as written instructions for making multi-strand projects. The photographic instructions are very good and go step by step with the written instructions to show how to make the featured design. I know this book will be very helpful to me in working with my own designs as well as showing a variety of ways to finish off the ends.

Great book, great photos, and great instructions... But what else would you expect from BeadStyle Magazine!!

I have been looking for a book like this for a long time. I love multistrand jewelry but few books give guidelines on the actual architecture of creating such a piece. This one fills that gap nicely. I just browsed through it last night but already I learned some good ideas to use in my own designs. However, the designs in the book are really pretty and quite varied.in style. I think this book is a great option for a personal jewlery-making library.

The projects were uninspired and dated.Although I subscribe to Bead Style magazine and like it, I think if I had "looked inside" I would have passed on purchasing it.

I have alwways liked multistrand necklaces and bracelets, but I didn't want to make somethng that could fall apart. That would be so embarrassing! Now with the great instructions and beautiful pictures I am tackling my fear. I especially liked page 70 a multistrand Wirelace necklace. I am going out to buy Wirelace because of how unique it looks. The different design alternatives are a nice added bonus. I am happy I bought this book.

This is such an amazing book I love the look of the jewelry and the demensions you can attain by making the beading differently. It will sure make you do some thinking out of the box. If you are tired of the same ole same ole this is the book for you.
