Bead Art April 21 2000
By Christine Saalbach - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This is not a "how-to" book, but shows the bead work of many artists. These works were featured at the Beadworks '98 exhibit at the Dairy Barn, the Southeastern Ohio Cultural Arts Center.
Chris Allen-Wickler covers rocks with peyote stitch, leaving holes here and there. Kenneth A Arthur uses brass shells and plumbing parts to make a sculpture he calls "My Dad's Drawer." Joann Baumann found a use for her old Nymo beading thread bobbins, using the bobbins as beads. Several artists give credit to Joyce Scott for encouraging their fearless use of beads.
Our San Antonio Bead and Ornament Society member Alison F Whittemore found a use for all of her extra beads and tiny treasures. She covered a beanpot with them. I hope she buys raffle tickets for our bead jar. She would have a blast coming up with a use for that eclectic mix.

Spectacular, Inspirational May 2 2000
By Angel Lee - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This is a truly spectacular book. The artwork ranges from the elegantly beautiful to the bizarre & quite humorous. All the photographs are in vibrant full-color & are printed on glossy stock. The book starts out with a brief history of beads. Each item is described with details on how it was made. Background information on the artists is also included.
One of my favorite pieces is a sampler of 9 tiny toys made of seed beads. I feel in the love with the many gorgeous decorated dress forms, jewelry & masks. The beaded beads & eggs are adorable.
There is nude woman sitting on a cow & eating a banana. In another a green woman lifts weights. I had to laugh when I saw a doll standing doll on her head and an old lady with a funky perm.

splendid highlights of contemporary beadwork Feb. 10 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
A fine illustrated survey of contemporary beadwork, with a helpful introduction and comments by the artists about their work. Particularly striking are the works by Manfredini, Meinhardt and my wife, Ann Mitchell.
