Go beyond simply stringing beads together--learn to weave them into beautiful textural patterns to create jewelry, bowls, baskets, purses, and even sculpture. With the step-by-step instructions and detailed diagrams in this guide, the seven stitches (peyote, brick, square, right angle, African helix, netting, and chevron chain) and their variations aren't terribly difficult to learn. Although they may take patience and some time to master, even the beginner can produce simple, attractive pieces. Beaders with more experience will be inspired to new heights of invention upon viewing the full-color gallery of spectacular bead weaving creations contributed by various artists to this attractive book. --Amy Handy
What a great book!
Reviewer: A reader from Eastern Massachusetts February 15, 2000 This was my first beading book and is still my favorite by far. It's got everything: very well-written instructions, wonderful diagrams, lovely photographs... There's lots of stuff here for both beginners and experienced beadworkers looking for some creative inspiration.

The only bead guide you need!
Reviewer: email@example.com from Stone Mountain, Georgia February 26, 1999 I had just started beading a bottle when I bought this book. In one step, I went from one-dimentional beading to three-dimentional art! I do not bead bottles anymore, I sculpt them!
