Beading: Learn It! Love It!
Me and the girls at work were just discussing that we would love to learn how to make the beautiful beaded necklaces and bracelets or lanyards that we use at our job. So when I got this book it was perfect timing. It has very detailed photos and easy to read instructions for each pattern. I also enjoy the fact that they offer patterns for various skill levels. We have had so much fun with this book at work. Shhhh just don’t tell our boss.
