Excellent Beadweaving Book
This is an excellent beadweaving book written by Kelly which I was so very fortunate to have as an instructor. She is so incredibly talented in not only beadweaving but in bead work, designing and her 'thinking outside of the box' or improvising. This was my first beadweaving book and I still use it as a reference and inspiration. I am so very grateful to have been fortunate enough to have been a student of Kelly's and I must say she has the patience of a 'Saint'..lol..she is the one person that was able to teach me (a left handed person) how to master the 'right angle weave'. Thanks Kelly!!! I can't wait for you to start teaching again!!! Review by Pam (Posted on 6/29/2015)
