The Absolute Beginners Guide: Stringing Beaded Jewelry Reviews
A good book for the beginner beader who has access to a beading store in the neighborhood who can get some help. Since I live in the bush, 400 miles by plane to the nearest beading shop, how great if the author could've included a size chart of correspondences for beads to the various hardware, or at least some recommendations. I've wasted a lot of money not to mention time, between stone beads of different sizes and elastic cord, needles, and wire that aren't the right size and don't fit through the bead. Frustrating start to my new hobby!
Good beginners book. Even though all the information is on the internet in one way or another, it is great to have a quick reference. It also helped me decide what I wanted to research more and how I could inspire myself with designs. I bought this book used and it arrived in terrific shape--I could have mistaken it for a new book. Good purchase, helpful, succinct and clear descriptions.
First of all, this book is worth five stars. I gave it four because I think some of the projects are a little advanced for a beginner. However, it gives a good decription of all the tools and beads in in that respect it is perfect for a beginner. Also, some of the projects can be simplified and then copied as a person gains skills and confidence. I think in time the beginner could do all of the projects, unless they are really challenged in this type of hobby. For me it's going to take some time to get past earrings.
This is a great book for beginner jewelry beaders or just to have as a reference guide. I ordered one for myself as I'm just a beginner but then my mentor who has been beading for 30 years was "thumbing" through it and asked me to order her a copy. She loves this book!
Not my favorite book
This beading book is good for the beginner and beyond. Many nice designs. Easy to use.
Excellent! Glad I bought it!!!
Stringing Beaded Jewelry is very well written and has wonderful pictures to help the beginner!
