Experienced beaders may find it too simplistic, but overall, it is a wonderful introduction to the world of beads.
Very helpful and informative - and lovely to look at, too!
For instance, it describes what real jet beads are, when they were in vogue and what imitations were made.
Sections show you how to use color, how to plan a necklace and how you can use themes like African, Indian, American Indian and children's styles in making jewelry.
In the back there is a section on using beads: beading, re-imagining old jewelry, using findings etc. as well as a bead resource page for suppliers.
This is a great resource for bead lovers. Also it is a great book for just wallowing in your love of beads!
