The photos are outstanding! The projects are either bracelet, earrings, necklace or one ankle bracelet. Pricing for making the projects would be extremely economical with a trip to Hobby Lobby or Michael's filling the project need for beads to your local bead shop or on-line store for rivolis, drop beads or foundation supplies for embroidery.
If you look at Kelly's web site, you can see her style. It's light and soft and beautiful! Also, her materials are simple to find or easily purchased on-line through Fusion Beads. Of course supplies are all explained at the begging of the book.
Her directions are amazing so I am not sure what the woman who gave a one star rating was meaning. (No disrespect to her.)
In fact, I think her directions are one of the best I've seen! In the beginning, she shows step-by step of stitches with real beads! The color photos are clear and well explained. Not rushed. Then, as each project is presented, there are photos and written directions of each step. For me they are extremely clear. I think better than some with just thread paths are.
Another thing I would like to mention is that there is true variety. For example, there are some projects that are basicly seed bead projects. Then there are those that you use lots of crystals. She also teaches you how to do bead embroidery.Read more ›
Excellent directions/pics & text. Easy to understand & figure out based on both text & pics.
The designs are modern, chic, and youthful (something I cannot say about all bead design books). I can imagine these pieces featured in Free People and Anthropologie catalogs! "Romance" is a great word to describe the feeling of these designs. Airy and sweet, kind of a hippie feeling. Just my style! I would definitely wear these pieces, or make them for my friends.
I can't say I learned many new techniques in this book but I don't care. This book is about the outstanding designs. I am inspired!
