I can't say anything more. Beautiful photos of beautiful work. Remember, this is a book of examples. There are no patterns or how-to's.Published 7 months ago by Mari Ann Shake
Paperback seems flimsy, about 1/3 featured projects are really basic, unskilled and uninspiring. The other 2/3 are what was expected.Published 8 months ago by christina senior
Beautiful book, can give a more expert beader than me a LOT of inspiration. I am going to need a lot more practice though to create this level of work!Published 12 months ago by Liza Sauls
