Don't know the first thing about beading? All it takes are some seed beads, a bit of thread, wire, or glue, a needle, and a little inspiration from Getting Started with Seed Beads.

Author Dustin Wedekind takes readers through the process of working with seed beads, from shopping to storing and from stringing to sewing a successful beginning project.

This must-have resource includes all the basics in a warm, encouraging tone: how to shop for beads, findings, and tools, giving the basic techniques with clear step-by-step full-color illustrations, and of course, plenty of great projects.

With Getting Started with Seed Beads, you'll begin by simply gluing beads to a base, then progress logically to manipulating traditional stitches such as peyote, backstitch, brick stitch, square-stitch frames, flat and tubular peyote stitch, netting, herringbone stitch and right-angle weave. You'll also learn how to finish off your project expertly. Projects include beaded buttons and rings, a curiously beaded tin, a beaded and sequined pin, beaded ribbons, scrunchies, bracelets, a coffee press cozy, and much, much more.

Always More to Learn!
I've been beading for quite a while and always trying to learn more. I was not disappointed in this book. This man is very thorough and helpful. Review by Barbara (Posted on 7/1/2016)
Great book
I really love this book, and use it with my beginning students. However, on page 12, Dustin shows those delicious (peyote?) rings, but I cannot find the instructions in the book. HELP. Review by DD (Posted on 10/7/2015)
Top-flight book for learning common stitches
I've had a copy of this book for a long time, used it to help quite a few friends get started in beading and thought so highly of it that I bought ten copies to give away... two have already gone to friends, two more promised to family, two to my bead society as prizes for 'challenges', and I'll have no trouble finding a home for the rest. Put it back on 'super sale' and I'll buy another batch to give away! Dustin keeps your attention, explains clearly and carefully, and his samples are inspiring -- what more could someone want when they are getting started? Review by Larry (Posted on 7/16/2015)
LOVE this book!
I wrote a long glowing review a few days ago and it was never posted. So I"m keeping this short. I don't want to make jewelry and this book has ideas for non-jewelry items. It has great drawings for how the stitches go - the needle and thread. I am so glad I bought this book, I'm a beginner. Review by Sally (Posted on 5/15/2014)
Good buy
This is a nice little introductory book. Good basics and not intimidating. Nice that it was on sale too! Review by Susan (Posted on 3/20/2014)
