Revised February 2015

This really is the BIG book of paper beading. It was designed with the beginner in mind but there's plenty to keep even an experienced beader interested! The wrapping method taught primarily is designed by the Author and is what she teaches in her classes. The paper beads she makes are made to be durable, wearable pieces of art- and YOU can make them too!

It covers a History of paper beads, Paper Ed. 101, Bead board and why that's important, basic beads and shapes: oval, round, cylinder, cone and hourglass. Now let's step it up a notch: it covers simple techniques that make your beads a work of art and moves it into some shapes that are designed exclusively by the Author: two tone, double cuff and flat beads. WAIT! What about those amazing beads coming out of Africa and the Philippines? Yes- those are in there too! As well as so much more!

But the most important part? This is a fun and easy craft that doesn't need any fancy tools or expensive materials. Great for all ages
