By Jean Baldridge Yates VINE VOICE on August 18, 2006
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I loved this book! I make jewelry, but I don't make seed bead pieces. Therefore, I was curious to explore a book which carefully and mindfully explained how to weave with seed beads, from start to finish.

Tammy Powley has provided me with a great beginning and I feel certain that I will not get confused or lose my way when I try the projects in the book. In addition, the incorporation of stones and crystals is a wonderful incentive to me to try the projects! I like the concept she has written about concerning the peaceful feeling you get when seed beading weaving. I could use some of that!

The book is beautifully photgraphed. It offers a great introductory set of chapters, for neophytes like me, and also a great gallery of beautiful projects at the end. I recognize and enjoyed seeing many names in the gallery of some of my favorite jewlery designers.

I know I will refer to this book frequently as I make my way through the early stages (and the later ones as well) of seed beading.

All of Tammy Powley's books are filled with helpful information and instructions. This book is no exception. Beside the many interesting and unique designs, she offers invaluable information on seed beads and related techniques. The instructions and their illustrations are very clear and easy to follow.

This book has a lot of good ideas and the instructions are clear and easy to follow. The author will direct you through completing an entire project, which is great for beginners. She also has included a lot of photos of her work, which is inspiring for people who like to create outside the box.

I do a lot of free-form peyote stitch and I found this book to be very helpful in designing my own projects. Plus, she provides instructions for other stitches that I am planning to learn (dutch spiral, e.g.) and that keeps me from getting in a rut. There's also an interesting section on using wire.

Definitely worth the price! I highly recommend this if you are a bead addict like me.
