Native American Bead Loom -Jewelry 144 (Toy) A great idea, in theory, but I think this is a very poor design. The wing nuts do not tighten sufficiently to hold the strings in place - they just spin around and around. I will be able to get it working, with a bit of work and a few bits and pieces from around the house, but if I had given this to a child for Christmas I would feel awful about it... 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , December 31, 2006

    0 3/5 Karen Smith (Charlotte NC USA) - See all my reviews, December 1, 2010

    Great collection from Bead and Button

    From the editors of Bead and Button, this book collects 102 patterns.The introduction illustrates the seed bead stitches the patterns use. Then it goes into the patterns.The patterns are printed large enough and in full color to be very easy to read. They are diverse, ranging from bold graphic styles to delicately shaded animals. There is something for every pattern collector in this book I think. Pendants, amulet bags, bracelets and earrings patterns, as well as an intricate pattern for a light shade.The chapters separate the patterns by style instead of by technique or type. The first chapter is Animals which includes insects, birds, lizards and mammals. It starts with an elegant, stylized spider in square stitch, and also has hummingbirds, pandas, butterflies and beetles.The next chapter, Geometric and Abstract Designs is probably my personal favorite. Patterns inspired by textiles, architecture and pop art have lots of bold color and work very well for all... 4/5 Shala Kerrigan (Anchorage, Alaska) - See all my reviews, December 22, 2010

    You'll Love It Or Hate It - and I've Returned It!

    I am neither a beginner nor an expert beader. What I was hoping to get from this book, I did - kind of............Because this book is advertised/promoted as a "pattern" book, I thought it would be a good source of ideas to help me advance in beading. It is, as there is a good selection of subjects and styles; however, the expert beader will probably be disappointed.My disappointment comes from "how" the patterns are presented and the fact that finishing details are non-existent. The patterns (in most cases) are small, and will need to be enlarged (a LOT in some cases) in order to be workable. As for the finishing details - be prepared to search the Internet for instructions. If not for the fact that I do want to work several of the designs, I would return the book for this reason alone.The beading instructions given at the beginning are okay, but are brief and seem to be more a "refresher" for experienced beaders.UPDATE... 2/5 WD - See all my reviews Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Zellers Speaks to Beaders from Beginners to Advanced

    0 5/5 B. Wagner "Bead Weaver Fan" - See all my reviews, February 7, 2011

    Great ideas and clear instructions

    The technique is not new, it's a favorite project for teaching people flat peyote, or for trying out color combinations. What this book does very well is show a lot of ways to use these fast little beaded beads to make jewelry.It starts with the basics, how to make a bead tube, the tools you'll need for the jewelry and seed bead techniques, including 5 different turnarounds for odd count peyote and how to follow bead charts. All very well explained and illustrated.The projects are a great mix, because of the versatility of the shape and the wide availability of colors in Delica beads, it's possible to achieve a wide range of effects and styles. The Dragon's Treasure set is elegant and lush with an architectural feel, the Delhi Delight is a colorful lariat that would look wonderful with soft summer dresses. The Bead Tube Soup bracelet shown on the cover would make a fantastic seed bead sampler.What I like best about this book is that bead tubes can be made one at a... 5/5 Shala Kerrigan (Anchorage, Alaska) - See all my reviews, February 19, 2011

    Missing ranking and instructions sometimes not clear enough

    I am a long term beader, I am quite skilled in peyote and have a reasonable experience with wire wrapping. Based on my experience teaching, this books has some omissions that may have made it exceptional. There were basics missing for the wire wrapping projects, such as the use of an awl and how to wrap such that the wire does not kink. I was somewhat disappointed with the instructions and step by step shots of the wire wrapped bead, that could cause a significant amount of frustration, as it did with me. I would have hoped the editing would have picked this up, or testing projects on beaders of all levels of experience, and the gaps are obvious in some of the very complex projects in the book. Although there are basic instructions in the book, this is not a book for beginners and this is not made sufficiently clear. There are assumptions and jumps in some of the instructions that make it quite difficult if one does not have several years experience with peyote stitch or right angle... 3/5 B.

The summary of each project is a brilliant addition - it really makes me believe that I can make all the wonderful pieces in this book.Prior to this year, I hadn't bought many beading books.
