Reviews

This book has far exceeded my expectations. It’s a comprehensive guide to creating designs with triangles, teardrops, beaded beads, bezels, and pointed ovals, and more. The author offers a myriad of different designs that are presented with clear, start-to-finish instructions and diagrams…the challenge will be deciding which one will be first!

Full of interesting and creative ideas for the new shaped-bead craze. I’m not a total shaped-bead fan, but this gives me some useful ideas (and variations), and a good cross-section of the genre. I made my own version of one of the designs and it was most satisfactory. This book will go into my keeper shelf. It’s well written, clear, and even an old hand like me can learn from it.
