Seed Bead Revolution Reviews
Ummmm....This book was not my cup of tea. First I think it's too over priced for the short book it really is. Number of pages in the book is 93 and it's not a full sized book. Second the styles in this book are ummm....well, different. Nothing in it appeals to me nor would I make as a gift for anyone. The photography of the jewelry is well done, the instructions are easy to read. Some of the pieces used to make some of the items I have no idea where you would find them. It's well written and I think the author did a nice job on the book. You can learn some techniques from it and more about tools and how to use them and different types of beads. For me this one will be one that ends up at Goodwill unfortunately. Shipping was fast as always with Amazon Prime.
This is an incredibly beautiful book! Full of beautiful pictures and very easy how to instructions, I love how it’s written! Feels like you are learning to bead with a close friend, very very enjoyable!! The ideas are gorgeous and the supply list was very helpful!
Interesting and very helpful.
Did not care for the book and therefore gave it to a friend who could appreciate
Anyone looking for a Fantastic book, please purchase this book. I received my copy today September 1,2017. It is not only beautiful, but is extremely informational and shows all types of seed beads, tools, soft flex wire, diameters, and their usage. How to use the Magical Crimper tool. And absolutely stunning designs of jewelry using Soft Flex beading wire. I would highly recommend this book. I am 100% satisfied! Thank you Sara and Kristen.
I’ve been beading — seed and otherwise— for a LONG time, but I still found this book to be filled with new ideas — and lovely designs. The instructions are spot on (perfect for beginners) and the photos are gorgeous. There are more designs that I want to do than I’ll have time for till after Christmas, but I will be using the book as inspiration for gifts. I love a book where there areprojects that you want to tackle “as is” and others that spark my own ideas. Fantastic book!!
I only have great things to say... I savored every page,reading every word. I loved the little phrases at the beginning of each project, I loved reading the forward, both of your bios and your acknowledgements..oh! & of course, the projects, which are so beautiful, I want to make each one!!! Each page is beautifully writen & so detailed that even a beginner beader can create these amazing designs. And each page is filled with incredible photos ! PLEASE BUY THIS BOOK, YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED!
I got my copy a couple of days ago and love it. I am a seed beader who wanted to do something other than bead weaving. This book is beautiful. It comes with 16 patterns from the authors plus a bonus guest pattern by Nealay Patel, which I must say I cannot wait to try. I have already tried a couple of patterns and even did one where I switched up the type of seed bead (since I didn't have the right one on hand) and loved it! The book was done beautifully and has lots of good information about materials and tools used in the book. It is a fun way to get creative and change up your normal beading no matter your skill level or experience. There is something for everyone from bead weavers to people who like to sting. My only down side was a few of the patterns feature the seed beads more as accents than having them center stage which was what I was hoping each pattern did. But the beautiful designs speak for themselves and are pleasing to look at and fun to create. I can't wait to get my bead order in so I can try other projects.
