I highly recommend this extraordinary book! It is an inspiration, showing the creative diversity of bead artistry. I love the way the authors have included the historical value of these art pieces from around the world, integrating personal comments from the artists themselves. The superior photographs show details of rich color and texture not usually seen in books of this genre. I have sent this book to professional jewelry designers and friends around the country.
The photography is wonderful too. Read the introduction--very interesting.
This is a book you must add to your collection.
Anyone who is interested in beads -- making them, buying them, stringing them or wearing them -- will love this book. First of all, the quality of the photographs and the writing are exceptional. That's not surprising when you learn that all the principals connected with the project have worked for National Geographic at one time or another. So along with remarkable designs by 70 of the best artists now working in the field of beaded jewelry, you'll find information about the history of beads and beading. The combinations of colors and materials are truly inspiring. This is a must-have book for anyone interested in the age-old art of creating beauty from stone, glass, metal and string.
Just wanted to tell you the reaction to your book here. A beading friend saw it at another beading friend's house. She immediately purchased one, then told me about it. She brought it to our bead society meeting last night and I came home and immediately purchased it, too. And several of the ladies in our group said they wanted it also! What a wealth of inspiration! And so beautifully photographed and displayed. Thank you, thank you for sharing this with us all. Who knows what wonderful creations will be born from seeds you have sown!!
