 Review

The projects in this book cover a range of skill levels, beading techniques, and styles. I’m interested in trying over half of them. The techniques included are bead weaving, bead embroidery, bead stringing, and wire work.

Besides the projects, the book also has a section to teach a variety of essential skills, and it also has a section covering supplies. I found the instructions to be clear and helpful (along with the great photos), but as with a lot of instructions, I had to supplement these with other sources (such as online, Youtube, other books) to fully understand. I’m currently working on the loom bracelet project:

The projects in this book are great for learning basic beading techniques, and I’m looking forward to trying many of them.

I received a copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
