It was great for showing how to make different type/shapes of beads, there was about 14 faux effects that were nice and a lot of good general information for beginners. It is probably very useful for anyone who has an interest in making beads, as it just covers about everything in a basic broad way that you can follow up with either youtube or other specific books when you find something you want to focus on.Emily
LOVE this book. I look at it for ideas. I look at it to make me happy. I look at it on rainy days. I look at it on sunny days. Good, clear directions. Great photographs.Sheila Read

Making Polymer Clay Beads: Step-by-Step Techniques for Creating Beautiful Ornamental Beads by Carol Blackburn (2007)Charity
I just got this book from the library, and found some really cool looking techniques inside. It's shorter than it should be though -- instructions and pictures seem kind of squashed together on some pages, I think so the whole technique would fit on a single spread of pages. Still, her instructions are clearly written and easy to follow. Over all, a pretty great book.
