I highly recommend this book for all beaders.

I know that I will not only finish reading the book (and practicing the stitches), but I will keep it in my library and will go back to it often for consultation.

I am new to beading. I first purchased "Seed Bead Stitching, Creative Variations on Traditional Techniques" by Beth Stone Seed Bead Stitching: Creative Variations on Traditional Techniques, which is full of lovely projects and has very clear instructions. I absolutely love her book; but it made me realize that before I tackled the projects on her book (which at the time seemed daunting to me due to my lack of knowledge), I needed some basic instruction on beadwork. I am so thrilled that, after much searching, I purchased "Teach Yourself Visually, Beadwork". This book is very clear; not only does it offer step-by-step instructions on the basics with numerous color photographs and graphs which are very clear, but goes further into finishing techniques and beginner and intermediate projects. I am happy to report that after reading the first three chapters of this book, I just finished one of Beth Stone's projects--and even modified it a little to fit my taste!

I highly recommend this book. I know that I will not only finish reading the book (and practicing the stitches), but I will keep it in my library and will go back to it often for consultation. The book is divided by Chapters, which take you from the basic materials needed for beadwork to beginner and intermediate projects to practice what you learned. I found Chapter 2 particularly helpful and clear and have gone back to it frequently and have successfully applied the instructions. I recommend that you "Look Inside the Book" and check out the table of contents. It will give you an excellent idea of the clarity and scope of what this book has to offer. Great book.

Much Nicer than the little spiral bound book which is Strictly FOR someone who knows nothing about beading. If you are a Visual learner then this book is for you.
Beautiful pictures, easy to follow directions for Peyote Stitches (more than one)Net Beading,Herringbone, Ladder and Brick Stitch, Square Stitch, Spiral rope, Right Angle Weave. It lists the beginning bead work as well as the more advanced beading for the intermediate.
Details on everything you need for each project as well as some better than most pictures of beads and some tricks beaders will find useful.

This book is excellent for the beginner and for your library when wanting to learn a new stitch. It also has a lot of tips woven in that I've not seen anywhere else and they are very helpful. Buy the book.

Hi, this is the book every beader should have on their book shelves. Everything you ever wanted to know about how to do that particular stitch is in the book. Herringbone, Peyote, Brick, Ladder, Dutch spiral, Spiral, How to zip up in Peyote, right -angle weave, netting and not just the basic stitch how to make tubular peyote, tubular netting ,circular , flat horizontal netting . How to read a graph in peyote and in R.A.W. This book is filled with "how to do it all" . This is a jewel of a book. It is simple with clear instructions and the instructions are brief and to the point. It has beautiful pictures where you can see the stitches and the diagrams .And in the beginning Chris tells you what needles to use threads and tools etc. And in chapter 9 how to make picots, fringes, and drops. etc etc.It's a nice juicy book, even has beading projects in the back of the book. I get so excited when I can share when a book is worth its weight in gold. This one is!
