New Beading Book Reviews

By November 27, 2012

Follow me on:

This week I reviewed two beading books published in 2012, both of which would make fantastic gifts for beaders (and items for beaders to add to their wish lists). The first is part of a series called I Can. This one is all about right-angle weave beadweaving, and the diagrams are fantastic. Check it out.

I Can Right Angle Weave Book

The next book is Jill Wiseman's Beautiful Beaded Ropes. It's part of the more advanced level series called Beadweaving Master Class. If you already know the most popular beadweaving stitches but would like to take their tubular versions to the next level, this may be the book for you. Learn why.

Are there any other beading books you've had your eye on this year and would like to know more about?

I’ve been waiting to hear about more about this book/series, wondering if the simple-seeming name was misleading or not, so thanks very much for your review. Have you seen the companion “I can Herringbone”?

I do think the name may mislead some people into thinking these books are only for absolute beginners, but they’re really not.

I do plan to review the Herringbone book soon, and it’s kind of exciting because the author has done beading videos for our site which are really well done. Here’s one:
