Now I know none of you are idiots, but if you're like me it's always nice to have a book that contains the nitty gritty of a craft you may not know much about but want to learn to do. And often, for me, when I already know about a craft, it's nice to fill in the gaps of my knowledge about it. These books are perfect for that!
This book contains everything you want to know about beading...the history, tools, design basics, techniques, for stringing, techniques for wiring, techniques for stitching beads, making your own beads, and more!
While this book contains only black and white photos, it does show many close up photos and graphics to help explain what to do.
