Attention beginners! 

Discover Beading from Bead Style magazine has got to be one of the great beginner books on the market.  The instructions are clear and simple, and the projects will not only teach you lots of basic techniques, but also add some beautiful pieces to your jewelry collection.  Editor Leslie Weiss has done a very good job with this book.  Nancy

Never let the bead thread smell your fear.  Approach it as you would a rottweiler: calmly, kindly, but with absolute assurance that you are in charge."  Carol Taylor,  Creative Bead Jewelry

There are lots of useful books on beading.  This is a good one.  Nancy

 

If a book you're looking for is out of print, click on any link to Amazon Books Home Page to find out if it is available as a used book.

 

 

You've probably seen most of the movies about jewel thieves and high adventure like Romancing the Stone.  But real life can be even better as I discovered in The Stone of Heaven by Adrian Levy and Cathy Scott-Clark, which recounts the history of Imperial Green Jade or jadeite.  This stuff is more valuable than diamonds and has a story steeped in blood. 

And you thought beads were just pretty baubles!  Nancy

  1984
