I was so excited to see Kelly publishing another book! This second one did NOT disappoint me! From a beader's view, this book has amazing variety. Many of the projects contain a complimentary piece to go with the project. In other words, if there is a bracelet, maybe a pair of earrings. If it's a necklace, a bracelet. The "Look Inside" feature is great because you can see many of the projects.

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.

I saw this book while surfing thru Amazon's beading books and loved the projects. I didn't buy it at first because I have never done this type of jewelry before. Then while going thru another time I saw this book again and decided to buy this book. I have had it for less than two weeks and gathered my first project supplies together. I started with one of the more difficult projects "Bedazzled Necklace and Bracelet". Now this is the first time I have ever done woven bead work and I found the directions very easy to follow. I am still working on this necklace... I just started it yesterday.... and OMG it is turning out spectacular!!!! I cant beleive that I could do this and have it come out so wonderful!!!! SO if there is anyone out there that might be intimidated like I was, dont be SCARED!!! I am so happy I bought this book.

I creating jewelry of all types. From simple strung necklaces to elaborate beaded amulet bags. This book really has beautiful items that are unique with a Victorian type influence. Also these projects do not require all types of expensive specialty beads. The only type I currently don't have are the cube beads. But they are affordable. I think that some of these could be a little challenging for beginning beaders and would recommend that they get some good practice on projects that are not as complicated. For those of us who have been at it for years it is a breath of fresh air designs!

The designs in this book are lovely, but I am finding the instructions a bit unclear. I've also discovered that one needs much patience to recreate these pieces of jewelry. If you really love the delicate style of the designs, and have patience, you'll enjoy working with the patterns in this book; however, after making a couple of the pieces, I know I will never attempt them again! I prefer the designs in Jill Wiseman's book "Beautiful Beaded Ropes," with which I have had more success, even though they can also be challenging.

I usually like most designs in a book and only love a few. Here the opposite is true, I won't have time to make every piece but love them all. The directions are well written and the graphics easy to follow. I found it inspiring (I'm about an intermediate level beader) and a beginner would be able to produce these projects as well. If you like the style of the cover photo you owe it to yourself to order this book.

Ooooo...this is the 2nd book I've purchased (by Kelly Wiese) & am just as thrilled to own/use this one as the first.
Excellent directions/pics & text. Easy to understand & figure out based on both text & pics.

Rarely do I make projects included in a book verbatim, but with this book, I make an exception!! I want to make each and every one of these designs!

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!
