You Don’t Have to Take Our Word For It: 5-Star Beading Books

If you’re a book lover like me, I’m sure you loved watching Reading Rainbow as a kid. My favorite segment when watching the show was the book reports. The host, LeVar Burton, would always say “of course, you don’t have to take my word for it,” when introducing kids’ recommendations.

Peer recommendations are the best. Whether wondering if you should read a new children’s book or a beading book, knowing that someone else with your interests loved their time spent with the materials is priceless. A 5-star rating makes it that much easier to know you’re making a great investment in a product you’re going to get a lot of use out of.

Having worked on the production of many of these books, I know how awesome they are, but it’s easy to think me biased. Knowing I was a part of the team making them, of course I’m going to tell you they’re fantastic, right? Well, when it comes to these beading books, you don’t have to take my word for it…


“Love it!
This book is absolutely worth it. Filled with brand new and innovative projects. Lovely pictures and instructions that are easy to follow. I thoroughly enjoyed going through the book. Quite a few projects I would like to try.”

“Beautiful jewelry projects with variation alternatives and clear instructions.
I found this book to be one of the best I have bought for some time. Beautiful photos, beautiful projects and clear instructions. And there’s something new to learn, like double diamond RAW and FRAW. Many of the projects are relatively quick to make. The jewelry is modern and youthful and simple in style. I especially liked that there are variation alternatives.”

“Nicely done
Fun projects and a few new techniques for an experienced bead embroidery fan who has made a few things with soutache.

Would provide interest for someone with knowledge of this technique and has plenty of guidance for someone brand new to using this material. I especially liked the detailed directions for making bezels for stones.”
