Karen Williams' book gave me the confidence to try freeform with
wonderful results. In the past, I've read several sets of instructions
for freeform peyote beading, but none as comprehensive as this. It
gives you the tools to make wonderful pieces. It also describes
step-by-step how the author made some of her own pieces. Now I'm ready
to branch out & include other bead stitches in my freeform.This
is a great book for any beader, just for the design information in the
first several pages. These principles apply to any type of beadwork. I
also noted the balance of type, illustrations & white space in the
book. I was never overwhelmed with all the information on the page.
This aspect of readability is sometimes forgotten in books that cover a
primarily visual topic.I really like this book!!
ps - I just wish I'd written this when I read the book 6 weeks ago. The review would have been much more detailed.
What is the title of the book?
Hi Teresa, the message heading is the title of the book.
Thank you! I am so glad you found my book useful! Freeform peyote is one of my all-time favorite beading techniques and I love seeing other people give it a go. :) As you note - it's a great starting point for combining it with other stitches too.
And thank you for sharing photos of some of your pieces!
