always been intimidated by Bead Crochet, but this book from Judith Bertoglio-Giffin
has helped to dispel much of that.
With lots of clear
and easy to see photographs and professional graphs, the art of Bead
Crochet is made, if not simple, then at least much easier than I had
thought. The writing is clear and understandable and the lovely
photographs alone are worth the price of the book.
This is a complete
course and project book - consisting of instructions, hints, tips,
complete project patterns, ideas, more advanced techniques and more. Judith
does an excellent job of teaching the basics of both rope and flat
crochet, as well as unexpected design help and layout instructions for
your own designs. She also covers more advanced applications of Bead
Crochet using bead size variations and incorporation of textural
elements. If that's not enough, there is also a fine Gallery of Bead
Crochet projects that will get your creative juices flowing!
very fine book, well worth the price.
