Excellent buy

This was a beautiful book for a great price! It arrived on time. I was very satisfied with this purchase.

big beautiful book of beads

this book is invaluable for any beader beginner or advanced. the explanations and how tos are priceless. I've used it for reference for several years. Got it week after week from the library and finally brokedown and purchased it so I could consult it when ever I wanted .Especially recommend it to beginners.

Awesome Book!

I agree with the 2 previous reviews. This book has everything you can think of, and lots of projects you never thought of. This is the only beading book you will ever need. A great value, worth every penny.

This book is HUGE

The Big Book of Beautiful Beads has pages and pages of projects and nearly everyone can find something they love in this book. It is actually 4 previously published books in one: Quick and Easy Beaded Jewelry, Beaded Adornment, The Complete Guide to Beading Techniques, and French-Beaded Flowers: New Millennium Collection. So, if you are like myself and love bead books, buying this giant book rather than each separately will save a lot of money. I was most interested in the fourth book, beaded flowers, but after looking through this book I have found lots of projects that I would really like to try. The first three books have lots of stringing and weaving and for those who like to design their own woven jewerly or decorate their home, there are a few pages of graph paper to copy for loom weaving, brick and peyote stitch, herringbone graph, 5 bead netting, right angle weave, etc.

THE only beading book you'll ever need

This book is actually a compillation of four books, as listed in the description, and among the four of them, you're sure to find the technique you're looking for. The Complete Guide to Beading Techniques is probably the most comprehensive reference in the book. It includes instructions on various forms of beadweaving (peyote, brick, herringbone, netting, right-angle weave); bead embroidery; bead tetting, knitting, and crochet; wirework; and stringing. A few patterns are included for each technique, including a little sample. There are no instructions on the basics of crochet, knitting, or tatting, but those can be found elsewhere. The directions are clearly illustrated, and it's easy to figure out each technique. The book also includes invaluable information on various beading supplies, as well as beading tips. My biggest complaint is that there were many beautiful-looking beaded items in the book, but no directions to make them! Quick & Easy Beaded Jewelry was really not my taste, but does provide beginners with some projects to get their feet wet. Personally, I found the pieces in there to be sloppy-looking, but they do teach you the basics. Beaded Adornment is also not really my taste, but the pieces sure are stunning. This book deals mostly with beading cabochons, fringeing, and peyote/brick weaving. French-Beaded Flowers: New Millennium Collection is a wonderful collection of instructions for making beaded flowers. They look gorgeous, and the directions seem pretty clear. Overall, this is a GREAT volume, especially at its price. You really won't need another reference book if you have this one.
