This is a great book to learn this technique! I crochet, but have not tried incorporating beads. The book has good pictures of how to accomplish various levels and types of jewelry. Can't wait to get started working on some of the projects.

This technique was harder than I thought it would be. I spent a lot of time learning with pony beads. The detailed instructions were a big help. The beautiful projects are something for me to work towards. I'm very happy with this purchase. I enjoy learning new crafts.
Can't wait to try some of the ideas in this book. Looks great:0)
